PH holds first Plant Sciences Symposium
International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) has joined forces with Corteva Agriscience™ to host a Plant Sciences Symposium in the Philippines.
Organized by the Association of Fellows, Scholars, Trainees and Residents of IRRI (AFSTRI), the day-long program includes presentations and interactions with leading plant scientists from around the world.
There will also be student presenters and poster presentations to give scholars and other young scientists an opportunity to showcase their work. The symposium will offer networking opportunities among scientists, experts, researchers, and students in the field of plant breeding and agricultural sciences.
“We have invited global and local experts who work on different crops to speak on integrating breeding and crop management solutions for future food security,” Organizing Committee Chair Parthiban Prakash said.
The topic closely aligns with one of the nine outcome themes identified by the IRRI leadership as a pillar of our impact driven research portfolio.
The Plant Sciences Symposium will be held on August 17 at IRRI Headquarters, Los Baños, Laguna.
