Nearly 200 delegates and other attendees recently participated in the 8th International Herbage Seed Conference hosted on the Lanzhou University campus in Lanzhou, China. The vice governor of the Gansu Provincial government as well as other dignitaries were present for the opening ceremonies of the conference, and were an indication of the importance of herbage seed in China.
The conference featured addresses delivered by dynamic speakers, interesting poster sessions, and tours, including a post-conference visit to the Hexi corridor. Delegates were treated to the gracious hospitality of our hosts and excellent local food.
Upcoming IHSG conferences will be held in Argentina in 2017, and in Oregon USA in 2019.
