We are pleased to announce the two awardees for the 2018 Agronomy Travel Award for Junior Investigator:
- Dr. Christina Clarke, a Crop Physiologist from ADAS, UK, undertaking applied research in improving crop performance, specifically studying crop root systems and how increasing root biomass in deeper soil layers can be achieved with both agronomic and genetic methods.
- Dr. Evgenios Agathokleous, a Post-Doc researcher of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science at the Hokkaido Research Center, Japan, carries out research to better understand the soil-plant-atmosphere interactions, especially on plant stress under different environmental stressors such as ozone, carbon dioxide, temperature, nitrogen deposition, and soil conditions. We had many impressive applicants for this award, and we congratulate our two recipients.
