Senior Researchers Dr. Kawamura and Dr. Tsujimoto participated online as evaluation committee member and observer, respectively.
Title of Ph.D. dissertation: Détermination des propriétés des sols malgaches par l’utilisation de méthodes innovantes et non destructives (Nutrient characterization of soils in Madagascar based on advanced non-destructive methods)
This PHD dissertation summarizes the results of Ms. Rakotonindrina's work in the development of a simple method for evaluating field nutrient characteristics and distribution in Madagascar and the effects of fertilizer management on their spatial distribution. The project was highly commended by the evaluation committee as a research result that will contribute to improving rice productivity in Madagascar. The acquisition of Ph.D. degree (human resource development) among local students participating in the project is expected to promote the continuation and development of the research results obtained in this project, and also contribute to future social implementation.
