A JOINT MEETING OF
The New Zealand Institute of Agricultural and Horticultural Science (NZIAHS)
New Zealand Branch of the International Association of Plant Biotechnology (IAPB)
New Zealand Society of Plant Biologists (NZSPB)
And including NZ Postharvest Conference
Tue 6 July to Thu 8 July 2021
AgHort Lecture Theatre, Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand
This is the fifth biennial meeting of three plant science societies and we are being joined this year by the organisers of Postharvest 2024, with specific postharvest sessions throughout the programme. In the midst of a global pandemic that is preventing international travel we anticipate significant interest in this meeting and advise early registration. Come and celebrate the freedom that we have to congregate in NZ! Members of any of the three participating societies qualify for discounted registration and links are available on the website.
This year sessions will include the following research themes:
- Gene editing
- Fruit and vegetables for Health
- All aspects of postharvest physiology and technology
- Secondary plant metabolism
- Tree & Vine Physiology
- Germplasm conservation
but as always we welcome presentations on any aspect of Plant Biology.

In the event of interference from Covid-19 we will deliver a fully or partially online meeting. This requires all presenters to be prepared to submit pre-recorded talks about 10 days before the conference; they will be password protected and made available only to registrants and will be taken down after the meeting. Full details will be advised on the conference website.
