The Danish Cereal Network

The Cereal Network (Cerealienetværket) is an informal network within the cereal sector, embracing research, breeding, production, processing, industry and trade. The network aims at improving quality and sustainability throughout the entire value chain of cereal grain production. The network has for 20 years brought together researchers, breeders, producers of cereal-based products, food and feed enzymes and suppliers within Danish cereal production for an annual meeting.

The Annual Meeting 2020 will take place on Monday March 9 at Kobæk Strand Konferencecenter, Kobækvej 85, DK-4230 Skælskør, http://kobaek-strand.dk. The meeting is co-organized with the DanSeed Symposium 2020 on Tuesday 10 March. 

Three sessions on highly relevant topics within cereal science, breeding and production will cover new approaches to increasing and ensuring cereal yield and meeting the future demands for a certified and sustainable cereal production. 

The meeting is open for everybody who takes an interest in cereals.
