Laurie Drinkwater hosted a visit by five scientists from China Agricultural University in Beijing August 22 to 25.

“They were from the department I visited when I was in China last year and are engaged in research on plant nutrition, nutrient cycling and nutrient management on a scale from the rhizosphere and plant level to national and intercontinental flows,” says Drinkwater. “They are interested in expanding their collaborations with U.S. scientists interested in agricultural sustainability.”

One of the scientists, Fusuo Zhang, Dean of the College of Resource and Environmental Sciences at China Agricultural University, delivered a seminar on “Ecological Interactions in Plant Production” during the visit.

Zhang is the leading scientist of national nutrient management program in China and was awarded the National Natural Science Prize (the country’s most prestigious science award) in recognition of his work on rhizosphere nutrient management.
