PSI Conference and Study Trip 2023

We are pleased to announce not one but two new events for our members:

  • the 2023 conference which will be held at Austin Texas from 12th to 15th October. Highlights include:
    • whole day field trip to find Passiflora in the wild, led by Wesley Franks
    • visit to Larry Gilbert’s greenhouses and butterfly-friendly Passiflora collection
    • presentations by John MacDougal, Larry Gilbert and others
  • a very special Study Trip to Brazil to visit Embrapa’s centres in Brasilia and Cruz das Almas from 17th to 29th October
    • Embrapa is Brazil’s premier agricultural research institute and specialises in Passiflora, ornamental as well as for fruit
    • you will hear about their latest work on topics such as breeding, RNA, cultivation, disease protection and nutraceutical applications
    • you will be also able to meet some of their outstanding team of scientists, and discuss these and other topics with them

To complete the programs at both events, we now need your input. Please follow the links above to learn more and fill in the preliminary registration/expression of interest forms, stating your preferences and suggestions.
