The International Lupin Association is pleased to announce the 16th International Lupin Conference to be held on June 19th – 23rd, 2023 at Hotel Radisson Blu, Rostock, Germany.
The meeting will be held under the auspices of Federal Ministriy of Agriculture (BMEL) financed by the Federal Office for Agriculture and Food (BLE) and organised by the Julius Kühn Institute (JKI).
The conference will include invited speakers, contributed papers and posters. On Wednesday an excursion day including field tours and the visit of a lupin processing company will be conducted in the precincts of Rostock.
In this regard, the meeting is open to all people interested in the biology and agricultural use of species belonging to the genus Lupinus.
The International Lupin Association was founded in 1980 when the first conference was held in Peru. Subsequent conferences have been held in Australia, Bolivia, Chile, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Poland, Portugal, Spain and USA.
The city of Rostock is situated in the northeast of Germany, which is a main growing area of narrow-leafed lupin and, to a lesser but increasing extent, for white lupin.
Due to the current corona situation we decided to choose a hybrid conference format open to participants on site as well as online (video conference).
We will have a diverse programme including many aspects of lupin cultivation and use.
