Science Forum 2009: posters selected

Our readers may recall that in April we mentioned in a blog post that the organisers of the Science Forum 2009,  were interested in hearing back from people who had been involved in projects that looked at how Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) were enabling agricultural science to be a social endeavor by communities rather something done by a few scientists tucked away in a laboratory. Essentially it was a call for posters on this theme.

The winning poster was:

Rural Information Kiosk: Taking IT to farmers for improving crop water efficiency in areas subjected to groundwater distress: an FAO-India initiative. / by K.A.S. Mani, P.S. Rao, and Das S.V. Govardhan.

Nine other posters were selected and will also be presented at the Science Forum.  They can be viewed here.

For more information about the Science Forum, which will be held on the 16-17 June in Wageningen,  please click here.
