The Global Plant Council (GPC) is a coalition of national, regional and international societies and affiliates representing plant, crop and agricultural and environmental sciences across the globe.

The GPC seeks to bring together all those involved in plant and crop research, education and training, to facilitate the development of plant science for global challenges such as world hunger, energy, climate change, health and well-being, sustainability and environmental protection.


The arms race at the plant root: How soil bacteria fight to escape sticky root traps

Soil is full of microbes. Specialized border cells at the outer surface of plant roots fight off these microbes as the roots penetrate the soil in search of water and nutrients. A study published in PLOS Pathogens reveals how plant pathogens fight back against entrapment by sticky root border cell secretions.

New origins for farmed rice discovered

Chew on this: rice farming is a far older practice than we knew. In fact, the oldest evidence of domesticated rice has just been found in China, and it's about 9,000 years old.


International Conference on Advances in Soil Sciences

Alexandria, Egypt

The conference will focus on multidisciplinary approaches to soil science, with a focuses on soil functions and limitations under various land-use systems and climatic conditions; remote sensing applications in soil sciences; precision farming; soil carbon and organic matter; soil and water use management; and the latest technological developments for soil use and management. The scientific sessions and panels will also emphasize basic concepts of soil.
