On the first and second days of the workshop, the "Symposium on Radiation and Nuclear Technologies for Crop Improvement and Productivity in Sustainable Agriculture", an open seminar cohosted with the Malaysian Nuclear Agency, was held. This was attended by around 150 participants from the Malaysian Nuclear Agency, agricultural institutes, universities, research institutes, companies and FNCA member countries.
At the opening, Dr. Muhamad Lebai Juri, Director General of Nuclear Malaysia and Dr. Sueo Machi, FNCA Coordinator of Japan delivered opening remarks.
At the seminar, a total of 19 presentations were delivered for four themes namely, overview, mutation breeding, nuclear technique for soil management for sustainable agriculture, collaboration and technology transfer. After that, panel discussion was held on the theme of "Challenges of Application of Mutation Breeding and Nuclear techniques for Food Security and Sustainable Agriculture", and panelists and participants made an active discussion.
After workshop, the presentation summaries of the open seminar were written up.
