"Namaste and welcome to the online platform of the International Conference on Next Generation Plant Production and Bioresources Utilization Technologies (NGPPBUT 2019) in coordination with International Plant Propagator’s Society (IPPS), USA.

It is our privilege to be connecting to you all through this medium and engage with you in the latest developments on cutting-edge research and technology in the area of Next Generation Plant Production Technologies. Technological development in the area of plant Sciences is making critical inroads in various aspects of Plant Production, Agriculture and Horticulture. However, interventions are urgently needed to address issues, which are critical to the nation and the world at large, with a special focus on technology to improve productivity of Plant Bio-resources of North-East Region of India. This conference which will engage with scientists, researchers, students, academicians, plant growers, industrialists and entrepreneurs on a wide range of issues from advances in Nursery Technology, Farming practices, Phytoremediation, Utilization of farm waste, Eco-restoration propagating natural flora, Genome Editing, Consumer Biotechnology, innovative and best practices in Micropropagation, and other concerns relevant to the area of Plant production at commercial scale.

The Conference, scheduled on February 11-13, 2019 at IIT Guwahati, will provide an opportunity to the scientific community from different parts of India and various other countries to exchange information, brainstorm and collaborate on new dimensions in next generation plant production by amalgamation of various aspects of plant biotechnology and nursery technology to commercialize the quality plant produce.

We once again welcome you to International Conference on NGPPBUT 2019 and are confident that your engagement, scientific contribution and ideas will pave a way to allow the scientific community and experts on nursery technology to suggest and provide solutions to challenges in the field of Plant production technology. IIT Guwahati, with its idyllic setting in a region tremendously rich in flora and fauna, provides the perfect background to the engagements and possible solutions that we seek to have.
