21st ISTRO International Conference


We are pleased to invite you to participate to the 21st International Soil Tillage Research Organization (ISTRO) Conference, which will be held from Monday 24th to Thursday 27th September 2018 in Paris.

ISTRO organizes an international conference every three years to review progress in terms of research and innovation. The conference brings together 250 to 350 participants ranging from soil scientist to agricultural field advisers, engineers of technical institute or in agro-equipment and teachers. The conference is organized in a different country each time.  For the first time the conference will be held in Paris.

Facing the challenges of food security and climate change, soil and tillage researchers are active contributors to the development of sustainable agriculture. The scientific topics during the conference will focus on advances in soil structure characterization, soil compaction, biogeochemical processes and carbon sequestration, with a special interest on soil ecology and ecosystem services. Equipment strategies will also be discussed with soil tillage strategies, smart farming, tires and tillage equipment design.

The conference will be an excellent opportunity to present research, share ideas and obtain new perspectives in soil and tillage research that will meet these challenges.

You can get all the information on the conference website            http://istro2018.webistem.com

We kindly invites you to submit abstracts before 1 March 2018.
