Unfortunately, the Annual Meeting of the Healthy Crops Project had to be held online again this year. Although the best efforts were made to hold this year's meeting in Düsseldorf, the location of Heinrich Heine University, the pandemic once again threw a wrench in our plans. In the three-day online meeting, we managed to have good discussions on very interesting presentations. This enabled us not only to have an excellent exchange between the different groups but also to plan the next steps in the project. As a goal for 2022, we will try to organize another face-to-face meeting in April.
