About the symposium
The Nebraska Plant Breeding Symposium is a part of a biennial series which began in 2012. In 2015, the Symposium became an annual event. It is affiliated with a broader group of plant breeding symposia spanning multiple universities, facilitated by DuPont Pioneer.
The goal of the symposium series at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln is to enhance agricultural scientific literacy, stimulate collaboration, and help build interest in plant breeding careers. This one-day symposium is free, open to the public, and offered via webinar to the broader scientific community around the world.
This year’s theme is “Plant Breeding for Climate Resilient Agriculture.” The organizing committee wants to gather highly-recognized nation-wide experts covering this important subject.
