Global crop - Global opportunities

The 16th International Rapeseed Congress, jointly hosted by GCIRC and the Australian Oilseeds Federation, will be held in Sydney in September 2023 and you are cordially invited!

With a program covering 6 Core Themes (• Genetics, Genomics and Breeding • Agronomy, Physiology and Management • Diseases and Pests • Quality and Products • End Uses • Economy and Markets) over 3 full days, together with a pre-congress field trip, the 16th IRC will be the major global canola/rapeseed meeting of 2023.


The war in Ukraine, the world leader in sunflower production, is of direct concern to the whole research and innovation community for oilseed crops and more generally.

Faced with the situation, some national institutions are mobilising to offer assistance to Ukrainian researchers and possibly their families by hosting them at least temporarily.
