Event Description

Full Description:
QAAFI Science Seminar
Presented by Prof. David Jordan, Queensland Alliance for Agriculture & Food Innovation

Increasing global food production in the face of increasing demand and resource scarcity is the major challenge facing agriculture in the next 30 years. While large improvements in crop productivity have been made in the last century, the rate of progress is declining and further gains will require new solutions. Improving the efficiency of fundamental biological processes such as photosynthesis will be critical to meeting this challenge. Sorghum is a high-yielding C4 cereal, biomass and forage crop closely related to other important food and energy crops including maize, sugar cane and pearl millet.
