3rd June, 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM CET (9:00 AM - 4:00 PM Lithuanian time)

Lithuanian Soil Science Society at the Division of Agricultural and Forestry Sciences of the Lithuanian Academy of Sciences and Lithuanian Agricultural Advisory Service invites you to register and participate in the 5th International Symposium of Soil Physics, which will be held in Lithuania, Kėdainiai, 2-3 June 2022.

During the symposium, researchers from Poland, Lithuania, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Latvia and Estonia will share the modern viable methods in the study of soil physical properties and their innovative application finding interfaces between physico-chemical soil properties.

The Symposium will be online event on the Microsoft Teams platform. 
The event will be held in English.
