On September 19-22, 2018, the 2nd International Symposium of Carrots and other Celery Plants was held in Krakow. After the great success of the first edition of the Symposium, which took place in 2014 in France, a decision was made to continue the event. The aim is to collaborate to promote and support the latest scientific discoveries and technical advances in the communities of researchers and breeders of celery plants, especially carrots. The program of the Symposium included plenary sessions, parallel scientific and technical sessions, and field demonstrations.
