FABI rejoices with Prof. Terry Aveling who received this year’s SANSOR-Bayer Science for a Better Life Award. The prize is awarded by the South African National Seed Organisation and Bayer CropScience in recognition of leadership, innovation and positive contributions to the seed industry and agriculture. 

Terry is a seed scientist and conducts research on fungi associated with diseases of seeds. She is the second University of Pretoria scientist to receive the award. Dr Wayne Truter of the Department of Plant Production and Soil Science scooped the award last year.
