6th International Symposium Breeding Research on Medicinal and Aromatic Plants (BREEDMAP 6), Quedlinburg, Germany, June 19-23, 2016
The Julius Kuehn Institute, Federal Centre for Cultivated Plants (JKI) in collaboration with the Leibniz Institute for Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK) and the Society for Medicinal Plant and Natural Product Research (GA) organizes the 6th International Symposium Breeding Research on Medicinal and Aromatic Plants
Customers all over the world are interested in products based on natural sources. There is a permanent demand for high-quality products. Prerequisite are new varieties and lines of medicinal and aromatic plants with better resistance to biotic and abiotic stress, with adaptation to diff erent conditions in cultivation, and finally with an increase of active principles. In many cases we do have a breakthrough but for a broad range
of medicinal plants much can still be done in order to improve quality and quantity and to get constant high levels of active principles. The BREEDMAP 6 Symposium presents the international platform to share new results and techniques with an international audience to create new ideas and fruitful collaborations in this promising field.
