Windy City Welcomes #ASTACSS Conference

asta-css15Seed industry representatives from around the globe are gathered in the Windy City this week for the 70th Corn and Sorghum Seed Research Conference, 45th Soybean Seed Research Conference, and Seed Expo 2015 – better known as CSS 2015 and Seed Expo. The event was held December 7-11, 2015 with more than 2,900 diverse people from across the globe at the event, coming together to look at what the American seed industry is doing.

Among the big topics of interest to the seed industry this year is GMO labeling and the hope that Congress will take some action before the end of the year to head off a patch work of state and local laws set to be implemented.
