XIII International Symposium on Grapevine Breeding and Genetics 2022 in Landau, Germany

Julius Kühn Institute (JKI) is hosting the 2022 Grapevine-Breeding Symposium from 10th-17th of July in the German wine-growing region Palatinate. The conference is held under the auspices of the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) and the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (IOV).

Quote: „We at the Julius Kühn Institute Geilweilerhof are proud to host this international conference and provide a networking platform for breeding researchers, grapevine breeders and wine growers from all over the world“, says Dr. Reinhard Töpfer, head of JKI’s Institute for Grapevine Breeding. The Institute under the roof of the German Federal Research Centre for Cultivated Plants named after the 19th century agronomist Julius Kühn is located in Siebeldingen, in the wine-growing region called Palatinate or Pfalz in German.

The conference will take place in the historic art nouveau building „Festhalle" in Landau, a city located on the southern wine route in Germany.
The conference will highlight current research on grapevine and wine in eight sessions and poster presentations. The following topics will be covered:
• genetic resources,
• phenotyping,
• biotic stress,
• abiotic stress,
• grape and wine quality,
• big data management,
• breeding, and
• novel technologies.

A technical tour on July 13 will comprise excursions to the JKI research facilities an gene-bank at Geilweilerhof, and to the researchers at DLR „Neustadt an der Weinstraße“ or local wineries combined with wine-tastings. The conference dinner will be held at Annweiler, a city towered by the medieval Trifels castle, where the English king Richard Lionheart was imprisoned in 1193-94. Post-conference tours on July 16 and 17 will explore other famous wine regions of Germany.
