SARDI Crop Sciences Summer Seminar Series

Nov 28, 2023, 3:00 pm - 3:50 pm

SARDI Crop Sciences is pleased to announce the next event in our

Summer Seminar Series

This session includes two 20 min + 5 min question time talks, followed by light refreshments at the Plant Research Centre Auditorium. Unfortunately due to an equipment malfunction we are unable to offer it online.

Date: Tuesday 28th November, 2023

Place: PRC Auditorium

Time: 3.00 – 3.50 pm

SARDI Visiting Scientist, Dr Ariel Ferrante (3.00 – 3.25 pm)  

‘Yield response to frost in a set of historic wheat varieties’

Dr Ariel Ferrante’s research interests encompass the field of eco-physiology and pre-breeding in both winter and summer crops. Particularly, Ariel has worked as a research fellow, actively investigating the eco-physiological mechanisms of wheat and barley in frost-prone regions of Australia, and co-led a national research project supported by GRDC at The University of Adelaide. Ariel has been awarded a BSc. in Agronomy, with specialization in Plant Production (University of Buenos Aires), and a M.Sc. in Agri-Food Systems by Research and a Ph.D. in Agronomy (University of Lleida). Prior to his tenure at The University of Adelaide, he contributed significantly to the field as a postdoctoral research fellow at The University of Queensland (QAAFI).

SARDI Principal Scientist Eco-Physiology, UoA Affiliate Professor, Victor Sadras (3.25 – 3.50 pm)

‘Pulse ecophysiology – low hanging fruit and unique traits’

Victor Sadras leads the Crop Ecophysiology team at the South Australian R&D Institute. He is interested in the adaptation of crops to environmental stresses, including water deficit, extreme temperatures, nutrient deficit, soil physical and chemical constraints, pathogens, and insects. He has developed theory, measured, and modelled aspects of the water, carbon, and nitrogen economies of annual and perennial crops in rain-fed and irrigated systems of Australia, Argentina, and China. He is the co-editor of Crop physiology: applications for breeding and agronomy (Academic Press) and published 277 papers in peer-reviewed journals returning 21,400 citations and h = 86 (Google Scholar).

We look forward to seeing you there.
