As QAAFI enters its seventh year of operation, what are the key challenges facing the organisation to meet the research priorities of our stakeholders? Where will the growth be in crops, horticulture and food sciences? How can QAAFI’s global research collaborations deliver benefits to Queensland, and tropical and subtropical production systems in northern Australia? What are the challenges and opportunities to meet the key challenges of reduced R&D funding, climate stressors, technology and consumer drivers over the coming years? Join Professor Robert Henry, Director of QAAFI, for the first of QAAFI’s 2017 research seminar series.
