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 GPC supports the principles of open science and the free dissemination of information around the world, particularly to those in countries without access to research media.


Large and branched root systems can speed up growth of spruces

According to a study by the Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke), strong growth rate of spruces can be due to the structure of their root system. A large and branched root system offers a major benefit when competing for water and nutrients, and it can boost the growth of fast-growing spruces when compared to slow-growing ones already from the early stages.

2nd Ohio State University Plant Sciences Symposium: “Enhancing Plant Science through Technology, Communication, and Innovation”

Columbus - Ohio - USA

Welcome to the 2nd Ohio State University Plant Sciences Symposium: “Enhancing Plant Science through Technology, Communication, and Innovation”. Advances in plant science influence the development of technology and improve our lifestyle. In turn, technology, communication, and innovation greatly impact and enhance many aspects of plant science. The Plant Sciences Symposium at The Ohio State University serves to provide members of academia and industry with opportunities to engage and share research on current topics within the many disciplines of the plant sciences.
