This seminar series started in the spring of 2014 as an experimental form of scientific outreach: video a short presentation, the audience watches the video on their own time, we all join in discussion online. The seminar series featured some of REACCH's outstanding young scientists from all three universities and led to invigorating project integration and interdisciplinary research discussion.
The Seminar Series focuses on cropping systems throughout the region, including novel harvesting techniques and alternative crops in rotation. We have policy discussions from the NSPIRE program and the latest developments on pest management, ecological interactions, socioeconomic studies and data management. Watch the seminar on REACCH's YouTube channel or this page.
