Editor’s note: While those of you in the southern hemisphere are headed towards harvest, we are experiencing rather cold temperatures as we head full force into our winter months in Oregon. The recent crop year was warmer and dryer than average which resulted in lower yields and a tough planting season. But, we have now received quite a bit of rain and are all hopeful that we are turning the corner and headed into a productive year for our herbage seed species.

Editor’s note: Here in the Southern Hemisphere we have had a drier than normal winter with a hot dry El Niñosummer predicted to follow.  The daffodils are opening and spring is upon us.  The memories of the 8th IHSG conference and post-conference tour in China still make me smile.  It is always so motivating to meet and spend time with other seed researchers.  I look forward to Argentina in 2017. Post-harvest management and new sowings for the Northern hemisphere as the temperatures start to drop.

Welcome to the 48th edition of the IHSG-newsletter.

During the upcoming workshop in New Zealand I will hand over the presidency to Phil Rolston and therefore this will be my last newsletter.

It has been a great honour for me to be the IHSG president through-out this eight year period and I would like to extend my warmest thanks to you all.

With kind regards
