    Present Trends and Future Challenges

    Upcoming 21st ISC

    On behalf of the International Sunflower Association (ISA), we are pleased to announce that the 21st International Sunflower Conference (ISC) will be held in Bayannur, China, from August 20-24, 2024.



    The 21st ISC will be a 5-day conference, consisting of plenary talks, scientific and industry workshops, and poster sessions. Topics of interest include but not limited to: sunflower genetics and breeding, genomic selection, pest control, cultivation and production, processing and marketing, commodity trade, and other fields of the entire sunflower industry chain. We believe that this event will strengthen the global scientific sunflower community, as well as demonstrate the dynamic changes, significant accomplishments, and development of the confectionary sunflower industry in China.


    The 21st ISC is being sponsored and organized by Inner Mongolia Sunflower Association (IMSA), Inner Mongolia Agricultural University (IMAU), and the People's Government of Bayannur. Although there has been only a two-year window for organizing the Conference due to the Covid-19 pandemic, organizers are continually dedicated to the carefully preparation for conference and wish to make the 21st ISC truly successful.


    We believe that your attendance will make a significant contribution to the success of this event. We warmly welcome you to join us at 21st ISC in 2024 and look forward to hosting you in Bayannur, an attractive scenic city along the Yellow River.
