INIA – Climate Change and Production
January 28 – February 8, 2019
The INIA fellows (Instituto Nacional de Innovacion Agraria – National Institute for Agrarian Innovation) spent 2 weeks in and around Raleigh to learn about how NC State addresses grand challenges in research and extension. While in North Carolina, the fellows met with NC State faculty and researchers and also traveled around the state to research centers and private farms. The topics the fellows discussed included climate change, research methods, soil nutrition, potato agriculture and extension. We hope this is just the start of a long-lasting collaboration with INIA to address training needs and research collaborations.
