Weed Science Congress on Herbicides and Growth Regulators

XI Weed Science Congress and Symposium on Herbicides and Growth Regulators

First announcement and call for abstract submission

Palić (Serbia), September 21-24, 2020

Dear colleagues,

The Weed Science Society of Serbia has, in an endeavor to stay in line with the developments of weed science as a very dynamic discipline, kept a long tradition of organizing weed science congresses. On behalf of the Organization and Scientific committees, as well as the Weed Science Society of Serbia, we would like to invite you to participate in the XI Weed Science Congress and Symposium on Herbicides and Growth Regulators, which will be held in the wonderful atmosphere of Lake Palić, on September 21-24, 2020. It has become a tradition for our weed science congresses that members of the Weed Science Society of Serbia and all the national and international participants present their scientific results in a professional manner and exchange experiences in weed science and control, as well as their expertise on herbicides and growth regulators. This time there will also be a number of current plenary talks and interesting oral and poster presentations of widely-acclaimed foreign and national experts, which will comprise the topic sessions planned in a way that will gather and entice all the participants to a more active involvement in the congress. The program will also include a delightful field trip organized with an idea to learn more about the tourist potentials of Palić and its surroundings, its cultural heritage, wine-growing traditions, etc. We invite you all to participate and thereby ensure a more successful congress.
