In this inaugural lecture, Professor Martin Broadley will describe how plant evolution, compounded by profound geographical factors (physical and cultural), causes widespread human micronutrient deficiencies across the globe.  The prospects for breeding and fertilising crop plants to reduce this ‘hidden hunger’ will be discussed, with a focus on sub-Saharan Africa.

Admission free, all welcome.
