Stage at CAAS in Beijing

For 2019/2020 I agreed with the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Science (CAAS) on a collaboratio of 40 days as a visiting Scientists. CAAS wants me to help them with publications, project proposals and particularly with pushing forward the ATS (Agricultural Technology Sharing) project.I had m y first assignment in October this year. I was happy to work again with my friend Prof Zhang Xuefu and his team.

During this month I participated also at the annual meeting of the International Agricultural Research Institute at CAAS. I learned how keen China is to line up their Agribusiness with European partners

One of the highlights of my time was a presentation on "sustainable precision viticulture", which we combined with a wine tasting.
