October 29-November 1, 2018: University of Queensland hosts 2018 International Leucaena Conference
The University of Queensland, in cooperation with the Leucaena Network, hosts the first conference in 20 years dedicated to the Leucaena geus, a multipurpose tree legume. This valuable tree grows in dry tropics and is particularly useful as an environmentally sustainable option for cattle feed. It is also used for land regeneration, methane production, and creating biomass.
Affiliate organisations include the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) and the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) – a CGIAR research centre.
Location: Brisbane, Australia
