World Soybean Research Conference

South Africa hosts conference


It is with pride that South Africa is hosting the World Soybean Research Conference (WSRC) next year February. This event provides a global forum for the world’s soybean researchers to exchange information and research findings across all segments of the soybean industry.

Attendees from around the globe are set to converge at the Durban International Convention Centre in Durban for this conference. Participants will hear from producers, researchers and industry leaders as they explore the entire soy value chain from growing and processing soybeans to transporting, using and marketing soybean products.

This year’s theme of "From China to Africa - Can research close the gap between soy production and increasing global demand?", will highlight diverse topics in both plenary and concurrent break-out sessions, including: food security; sustainability; health and nutrition; genetics and breeding; processing; applications; agronomy; transportation and storage as well as an overview of commodity markets.
