Jubilee year 2018

10 Years Julius Kühn-Institut – 120 Years of Research in the Service of tomorrow´s Crop Plants

The Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) founded the Julius Kühn Institute in 2008 in order to concentrate all its crop plant capabilities in one facility. So in 2018 we celebrate our quite young 10th anniversary. But in fact, our agricultural research expertise stretches back 120 years. The Institute’s cradle stood in Berlin, in the year 1898. Here you find information about JKI-events where we give special attention to our jubilee:
