the seventeenth congress of the European Society for Agronomy (ESA) will be held in Potsdam, Germany, from 29 August to 2 September 2022. Being earlier advertised as Berlin, the Covid-19 pandemic forced us to adjust our plans and reduce the financial risk of preparing a physical congress, which may again be converted into a virtual one later. To our delight, the University of Potsdam, offered us their facilities for our congress at a convenient rate. We are now based at Lake Griebnitz, just between Potsdam, the capital of the federal state of Brandenburg, and Berlin, the federal capital itself, with excellent public transport connections in both directions.
Preparations have commenced, and the scientific committee of the ESA2022 is now preparing the programme. Please observe this website regularly for not missing any news. We are aiming at calling for abstracts as of 1 November 2021, and we will decide on holding the congress physically or virtually by 28 February 2022, the final submission date for your contributions.
Until then, I and my team at the Leibniz-Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) wish you a fruitful outdoors season, successful experiments and interesting findings, which we hope to see presented at the XVII ESA congress in Potsdam.
