At that congress, the organizational committee devoted themselves to proceed the assembly biennially, leading to the second Pan-American Congress on crops and BioEnergy to be held with the endorsement of ASPB, July 6-10, 2010, in São Paulo, Brazil. while the first congress coated a extensive variety of issues that bioenergy impacted, the second one congress will concentration extra at the advances in plant biology: the genetic development of power crop vegetation, their healthy into neighborhood environments, and the advance of a sustainable power agriculture.
