Win £1,000 by participating in the International Fertiliser Society's new Brian Chambers Award for Research in Crop Nutrition
The International Fertiliser Society has launched a new award scheme to support young (under 26) researchers studying at educational institutions at the MSc and PhD levels, whose work will have practical benefits for crop nutrition. Participation in this scheme requires participants to complete a short pro-forma about their research. The entries judged to be the best ones will then be invited to produce a poster, which will be displayed at our Agronomic Conference on 10-11 December 2015. From these the IFS evaluation panel will chose one winner to receive £1,000, and two runners up who will each receive £500.
IFS will promote the poster entries on our website and in our publications, but will not claim any exclusivity - so participants will be free to publish their work elsewhere.
The International Fertiliser Society was formed in 1947 and exists to provide an international forum for the discussion and dissemination of knowledge of scientific, technical, environmental, economic and safety aspects of the production, marketing, use and application of fertilisers.
The webpage contains information about the award, the reason why it was named it in memory of Brian Chambers, after his tragic and untimely death last year, and is also the place from where the application pro-forma can be obtained.
