Postgraduate students can be winners at CropWorld Global
This unique competition gives research students the opportunity of showcasing the results of their research to a global audience in the crop production market. The dedicated poster session will be displayed in the exhibition area and promoted as part of the conference programme. Successful entrants will be invited to present their posters to decision makers in the industry throughout the two days of the conference.
As sponsors of the poster competition, BCPC will be awarding a 1st prize of £500, a 2nd prize of £250 and 3rd prize of £125 to the three winning posters that a judging panel of world-renowned industry experts and academics deem to be the most innovative.
