Diversification & Digitalisation – Trends that shape future agriculture

Dear Friends,

the seventeenth congress of the European Society for Agronomy (ESA) will be held in Potsdam, Germany, from 29 August to 2 September 2022. Despite the fact that the Covid-19 pandemic is still around and bugging us, an overwhelming majority of you voted for having a physical congress (74%), while 26 % were preferring a virtual congress, but agreed to come to Potsdam if we meet in-person. 0% voted for a virtual conference and would not come for the meeting if it was physical. With this message coming across from you, the Scientific Committee decided that we will have a physical congress in summer! We will assure that all health cautions and regulations will be taken care of.

More than 240 abstracts have been submitted and the extended Scientific Committee has finished evaluating them. All submitters have been informed about their presentation option and are getting their material ready for the show. The registration for the congress is open until 15 August 2022.

We are all very much looking forward to welcoming you at the XVII ESA congress in Potsdam and wishing you a safe journey

ESA President Prof. Claas Nendel

Sincerely

Claas Nendel (ESA President)
