IHSG Newsletter 53

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.

In this issue, we focus on several very interesting research updates and also reports from workshops related to herbage seed production in both the southern and northern hemispheres. I encourage you all to review the information provided from our colleagues in Argentina who are making plans for the 9th IHSG International Conference in Pergamino, Argentina in October of 2017. This is issue 53 of the newsletter.

Details of the contact person in your area are listed on the back page of the newsletter and on the IHSG website.  Please remember to send articles to either of the newsletter editors or to your area contact person to be included in future newsletters.

Kind regards,

Jason Trethewey
