10–14 July 2023 The III International Symposium on Fruit Culture along Silk Road Countries

Hangzhou City, China

Dear Colleagues,

The III International Symposium on Fruit Culture along Silk Road Countries will be held on 10–14 July, 2023 in Hangzhou City, Zhejiang Province, China, under the auspices of the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS) and Chinese Society for Horticultural Science (CSHS). It is our pleasure to host this symposium and invite you to attend!

This event will be an excellent opportunity to bring together researchers, technicians, and other experts from different countries to present their research innovations, to share ideas and knowledge and discuss future perspectives of fruit culture. With the theme of the conference being “Ancient Road, Modern way”, we aim to create a unique exchange forum for discussing recent progress in the following topics: 

  • Genetics and Breeding;
  • Underutilized Germplasm Indigenous to Countries along the Silk Road;
  • Flowering, Fruit Set and Fruit Quality;
  • Rootstocks, Training and Pruning and Smart Orchard;
  • Orchard Soil Management;
  • Postharvest Technology and Processing;
  • Integrated Pest and Disease (including diseases caused by viruses, phytoplasmas and viroids) Management to Cope with Climate Change.

The conference will be hosted by Zhejiang University in Hangzhou City, the capital of Zhejiang Province, which is located along the southeast coast of China and is 200 km south of Shanghai, the largest city in China. Hangzhou has three UNESCO World Heritage sites, including West Lake, the Grand Canal and Archaeological Ruins of Liangzhu City, and is one of the most famous tourist destinations in China because of its long history of over 2,200 years and beautiful scenery. Hangzhou is also renowned as the “Home of Silk”, “Paradise on Earth”, “Tea Capital” and “Town of Fish and Rice”.

We hope that all the attendees will enjoy their stay in Hangzhou during the conference.

Conveners of the Conference:
Prof. Dr. Yuanwen Teng,
College of Agriculture and Biotechnology, Zhejiang University
Prof. Dr. Zhenhai Han,
College of Horticulture, China Agricultural University

15–30 October 2023 The 3rd International Electronic Conference on Agronomy


We are pleased to announce that the 3rd international electronic conference on agronomy (IECAG2023), chaired by Dr. Gianni Bellocchi, will be held online from 15 to 30 October 2023 at

IECAG2023 aims to provide leading scientists working in selected fields with a robust common platform on which to share and discuss the latest research and promote the advancement of exciting and rapidly changing research. Such fields include genetic erosion, rural engineering, grassland-based livestock farming, agricultural digitalisation, agrobiodiversity, post-harvest technology, quality breeding, plant growth promoters, and service crops. This online conference will make your presentation accessible to hundreds of researchers worldwide, with active engagement of the audience in question-and-answer sessions and discussion groups that will take place online.

The conference has been divided into seven themes. Please submit your articles as soon as possible, indicating which theme best fits your submission.

S1. Disease, pest, and weed control in sustainable agriculture;
S2. Agro-ecology innovation to re-invent cropping and grazing systems;
S3. Improving nutrient- and water-use efficiencies;
S4. Digital farming for the evolution of agriculture and agricultural engineering;
S5. Plant breeding, genetics, genomics, and biotechnology;
S6. Horticultural and floricultural crops;
S7. Poster session.

During the conference, you can upload papers, posters, and presentations (including videos), comment on other presentations, and engage with fellow scholars in real-time. In this way, the conference offers a novel opportunity to exchange opinions and views within the scholarly community and to discuss the papers and latest research in a discussion forum.

We hope you will be able to join this exciting event, which is organized and sponsored by MDPI, a scholarly open access publisher (, and the journal Agronomy (ISSN: 2073-4395, Impact Factor 3.949 (2021)).
