Mr Manh, the 2018 Crawford Fund Fellow, researching the development of panel production using agricultural waste material – in this instance sorghum stalk material.

The Crawford Fund Fellowship was established in 2002 with the generous support of Dr Brian Booth AM FTSE.

The aim of the Fellowship is to provide further training for an agricultural scientist from a selected group of developing countries whose work in the fields of agriculture, fisheries, forestry or environmental protection for development has shown significant potential. The training will take place at an Australian agricultural institution and will emphasise the application of knowledge to increased agricultural production in the recipient’s home country.

The Fellowship is offered annually to an agricultural scientist below the age of 35 years in the year of the award who is a citizen of, or who is working in, one the following countries: Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, East Timor, Fiji, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, Nepal, Niue, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Kiribati, Vanuatu or Vietnam.
