APPLECROSS res­i­dent Kadambot Sid­dique has been recog­nised for his global con­tri­bu­tion to dry­land agri­cul­ture.

Pro­fes­sor Sid­dique, di­rec­tor of UWA’s In­sti­tute of Agri­cul­ture, re­ceived the Global Re­search Lead­er­ship in Agri­cul­ture award at the 10th Global Agri­cul­ture Lead­er­ship Sum­mit in New Delhi in In­dia in Septem­ber.

It was an ac­knowl­edg­ment of his con­tri­bu­tion to in­creas­ing crop yields in non-ir­ri­gated en­vi­ron­ments and the devel­op­ment of pro­duc­tion tech­nolo­gies that will help fu­ture-proof food sources in th­ese con­di­tions.

Pro­fes­sor Sid­dique has 30 years of ex­pe­ri­ence in agri­cul­tural re­search, teach­ing and man­age­ment in both Aus­tralia and over­seas.
