Faculty, staff and students on Thursday will give presentations on research projects they are conducting to improve agriculture in California.
The 13th annual research showcase will take place from 3 to 6 p.m. at AGRIscapes (Building 211). The event, which is sponsored by the Cal Poly Pomona Agricultural Research Institute, will include a poster session and oral presentations by ARI faculty and student researchers.
“This year, students from other ARI campuses will be joining us,” says Professor David Still, Cal Poly Pomona’s ARI coordinator. “We invite faculty to attend the showcase to meet other researchers and think about how they may contribute to research projects that benefit California agriculture.”
California is the nation’s leading producer and exporter of agricultural products. The Agricultural Research Initiative sponsors applied research for the benefit of California’s agricultural industry and consumers. Through a competitive grant program, it provides public funds that are matched by industry or federal research resources to support high-impact research development and technologies that are readily transferable to the agriculture industry.
