American Society for Horticultural Science Annual Conference
Date:4/9/2008

The American Society for Horticultural Science (ASHS) will convene its 105th Annual Conference July 21-24, 2008, in Orlando, Florida. This conference will feature more than 900 individual scientific presentations encompassing the entire spectrum of horticultural science. Expected attendance will be more than 1000 scientists and students from the world over.

This year's conference opens on Monday, July 21, with the 2007 World Food Prize Laureate, Philip E. Nelson, presenting the 21st William A. ("Tex") Frazier Lecture at the Opening Plenary Session. Nelson received the award for his innovative breakthrough technologies in the area of large-scale storage and transportation of horticultural commodities.

Horticultural scientists study all aspects of fruits, vegetables, nuts, flowers, landscape plants, herbs, medicinal plants, and more -- the very foundation of human health and well-being. From new production practices to postharvest techniques that ensure food safety, from innovations in breeding of new plants to their use in the food chain and landscapes for our surroundings, the diversity that is horticulture will be represented at this year's conference. Four colloquia, 30 workshops, 45 oral sessions, 43 poster sessions, and special symposia form the foundation of the meeting.

Among the topics to be presented are:

  • Enhancing the Quality of Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
  • Invasive Plants in the Biosecurity Age
  • Irrigation in a Future of Limited Water Supplies
  • Identification of Nutritionally Important Metabolites in Fruits and Vegetables
  • Organic Practices and Opportunities
  • New Tropical Fruits for U.S. Consumers

and many, many others.

The 2008 ASHS Annual Conference will be held at the Rosen Plaza Hotel, 9700 International Drive, Orlando, Florida. More detailed information and the program and abstracts of all presentations can be found on the ASHS web site (ashs.org). Information and press registration materials can be obtained by contacting the ASHS Meetings Department (meetings@ashs.org).
