Retenez bien le nom du Prof Jose Romeno Faleiro indien de Goa qui est extrêmement présent dans toutes nos veilles documentaires et apparaît comme le scientifique incontournable. Cette distinction non négligeable # 80 000 € est donc justifiée. Ça rapporte le charançon !!!
Every year Kidpa awards the best two entries in each category, with the winner receiving Dh300,000 and the second prize being Dh200,000. The only exception to this is the Distinguished Personality award that rewards the winner with Dh300,000. This year, the award in this category went to Prof Jose Romeno Faleiro from India for a life time dedicated to date palm trees research.
“In the last 20 years Prof Faleiro did a lot of work on the red palm weevil, which is a palm tree pest,” said Dr. Zaid.
“There are only a few people in the world who spend 15 to 20 years of their lives on researching on date palms, and we do know them, so we invite them to apply for this award,” he added.
