One of the many highlights of the 2nd Annual Plant Phenotyping and Imaging Research Centre (P2IRC) Symposium was a highly successful Poster Competition which provided an opportunity for students to engage in discussion about P2IRC research and meet Symposium attendees, including speakers, researchers, producer groups, and industry representatives.
The 2nd Annual P2IRC Symposium: Designing Crops for Global Food Security, took place June 20-22, 2017, at the Delta Bessborough in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. The event was hosted by the Global Institute for Food Security.

The creation of the Plant Phenotyping and Imaging Research Centre stems from a $37.2-million award over seven years from the Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF) for the innovative research program "Designing Crops for Global Food Security"—one of only five CFREF grants awarded across Canada last year in the inaugural competition.
