Pears Alumni Webinars and Symposiums

The 2nd Pears Alumni Symposium in Plant Sciences: Knowledge Sharing - A Key for Enhancing Agricultural Productivity - September 2015

Sustaining food production for the rapidly increasing world population under diminishing resources is a major challenge facing global agriculture. While certain countries, such as Israel, managed to adopt modern agro-technologies and considerably increase their crop production over the last half a century, other countries are still lagging behind in this respect. Closing this gap by promoting agricultural practices in least-developed countries is among the most promising strategies to enhance crop production and food security where it is most needed.
