First International Wheat Congress

Wheat is one of the most relevant crops for mankind. The 1st IWC discussed novel findings and developments for sustainable wheat cultivation and use in order to support food and feed safety and security.

The First International Wheat Congress took  place in Saskatoon Canada, July 21-26, 2019.

After the highly successful 13th International Wheat Genetics Symposium in Tulln in April 2017, a new era of international wheat meetings has begun. The previously separated IWGS (International Wheat Genetics Symposia) and IWC (International Wheat Conferences) have merged and decided to organize International Wheat Congresses in two years intervals.
