Register now for Waite in the Spotlight 2018

Why should we preserve trees in our cities and towns? Can we grow healthy crops in sandy soils? How important are insects to agriculture? Does the yeast a winemaker chooses really affect the wine produced? Can we really turn food waste into usable new products?

Waite research is providing answers to these questions and more! Waite in the Spotlight is a celebration of the diversity of research at the Waite, what we do, and why it matters.

The talks at this free event will be short, each focused on a single topic or idea springing from agriculture, food, wine and environmental science and designed to be thought-provoking and interesting to a non-scientific audience.

When: 2.45pm Thursday 1 November 2018

Where: Lirra Lirra, McLeod House Waite Campus | Waite Rd, Urrbrae.

Not to be missed – Register now! Full details at: https://www.thewaite.org/event/waite-in-the-spotlight-2018/
