We are pleased to announce that the 7th Asian PGPR International Conference for Sustainable Agriculture 2022 will be held from 23rd to 26th August 2022 at Universiti Putra Malaysia. The Malaysian PGPR Society and Faculty of Agriculture, Universiti Putra Malaysia will co-organize the event on behalf of the Asian PGPR Society for Sustainable Agriculture.

This year’s theme for the conference is “Regenerating Agriculture Through Beneficial Microbes for Improvement of Crop Productivity and Safety”. The conference agenda will cover the most recent scientific discoveries that decipher the role of beneficial microbes in plant development, disease suppression and increase yield by direct or indirect mechanisms. Plant-microbe interactions in the rhizosphere are pivotal in carbon sequestration, nutrient cycling and ecosystem functioning and undoubtedly will be continually the main focus in the coming decades.

The conference will showcase various recent topics in plant-microbe interactions by distinguished keynotes, plenary speakers, as well as selected oral speakers and poster presentations by participants. The conference promises an attractive scientific program, with opportunities for networking and collaboration in addition to acquisition of the fusion of knowledge, technologies, ideas, and innovation.
