Proud Moments for IISR Scientists in International Forum

The hard work and innovative technology developed by Indian Institute of Sugarcane Research (IISR), Lucknow got recognition at international level. It was proud moment for IISR Scientists when Director of the Institute Dr. S. Solomon was honoured with Life Time Achievement award by IAPSIT (International Association of Professionals in Sugar and Integrated Technology) for his unparalleled scientific contribution in post harvest technology of sugarcane and sugar processing, during valedictory function of International Conference: 1S 2014 held at Nanning, China from November 25-28, 2014. Dr. A.K. Sah, Principal Scientist was awarded with best poster presentation on “Out Grower Model of Cane Development in India”. CaneDES: An Expert System developed by Dr. S. S. Hasan & team and Sugarcane machines developed by IISR received recognition in the form of poster awards.

A delegation of IISR Scientists led by Dr. S. Solomon, Director, IISR, Lucknow comprising Drs. A. Chandra, T.K. Srivastava, S.N. Singh, S.K. Shukla, A.K. Sah and M. Swapna participated in International conference on “Green Technologies for Sustainable Growth of Sugar & Integrated Industries in Developing Countries” held at Nanning China from November 25-28, 2014. In 1S-2014 more than 200 Sugarcane Scientist and researchers from China, India, Australia, Brazil, Bangladesh, Colombia, Egypt, France, Fiji, Indonesia, Iran, Mauritius, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Thailand, USA and Vietnam have participated for mutual exchange of information in advance technology of sugarcane cultivation and sugar making.

This plate form provided wonderful opportunity to IISR Scientist to learn from better practices of cane cultivation, harvesting and milling in China. IISR Scientists also interacted with the sugar industry personnel during visit to cane fields and sugar mill in Nanning. Sugarcane cultivation under undulated topography with high cane yield, non-lodging cane in the fields, de-topping of cane before harvest, supply of clean cane to mill and cane crushing in clean and hygiene condition was thrilling for visiting scientists.
