About The Symposium
Since then, ISTRC Symposia and Regional Events have been highly successful and have continued to attract an ever-widening group of participants. The ISTRC symposium has established itself as one of the forums bringing together international stakeholders especially those working on roots and tuber crops and has played a catalytic role in the development of these crops. ISTRC is a unique platform that facilitates interaction among scientists from around the world working on all tropical root and tuber crops. The Society was established to foster, stimulate, and support activities that lead to the general improvement of production and utilization of tropical root and tuber crops globally. It is through such symposia that research outputs are shared, future patterns decided and a wide-ranging decision on the position of tropical root and tuber crops on the African continent and global agenda are made.
