It’s a tradition: Tuesday of week 40 is Dutch Seed Symposium day. And in contrast to other traditions, the Dutch Seed Symposium becomes more and more an event of impact. The organising committee consists of people from the companies and they brought together an interesting programme. The programme is full of interesting speakers; the audience is full of interesting people to meet. If you work with or are interested in seeds, seed physiology or seed production, this is a symposium you shouldn’t miss. Registration is open until 27 September.
