From December 18 to 19, 2020, more than 40 researchers and graduate students of the Soil Ecology and Agricultural Ecological Engineering Research Center of the Institute of Applied Ecology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (hereinafter referred to as the Agricultural Center) participated in the 6th Lishu Black Land Forum held at the Jilin Lishu Experimental Station of China Agricultural University.
At the "Lishu Model" Applied Technology Commendation Conference, many researchers and graduate students from the Agricultural Center were commended for their work at the CAS Conservation Farming Research and Development Base.
Prof. Xie Hongtu, party member of the Agricultural Center, spoke as a representative of researchers at the commendation conference. He looked back on the development of conservation farming and looked ahead to the future of conservation farming. His own hard-working experience inspired scientific and technological workers and graduate students to do better work on the protection of the black soil. A number of graduate students from the Agricultural Center reported their own research progress, and conducted academic exchanges with experts and scholars from China Agricultural University, Jilin Agricultural University, Northeast Institute of Geography and Agroecology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Jilin Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Heilongjiang Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Northeast Normal University, and Jilin Normal University, etc.
