SHui’s message spread in South America!
18th -29th November 2019
While on a Royal Society funded visit to Argentina to visit soybean agronomists, Prof Ian Dodd (Lancaster) took the opportunity to disseminate information about the SHui project, emphasising the importance of enhancing crop drought tolerance to cope with variable rainfall environments. Widespread adoption of minimum tillage in Argentina provides some interesting parallels for some of the SHui community, with favourable genpotype x management interactions enhancing crop water availability. He gave seminars at the National University of Rosario and the National University of La Plata. Both Universities maintain extensive links with plant breeders and their local agritech industries.
