The 11th International Conference of the Peanut Research Community on Advances in Arachis through Genomics and Biotechnology (AAGB-2019) will be convened October 21-25, 2019 in Ji'nan, China. The weather will be a pleasantly cool autumn.

Shandong Province is one of the top peanut producing regions in China with an average annual peanut growing area of 800,000 hectares.
