The next stop of the educational trip was in Shanhua, Tainan where they visited The World Vegetable Center, an international, non-profit organization dedicated to vegetable research and development. Established in 1971, the Center aims to reduce malnutrition and alleviate poverty in developing countries. The symposium participants had a guided tour of the Center's high-tech experimental field where they saw the Phenosphex field phenotyping system, the vegetable gene bank where the world's largest collection of vegetable seeds are stored, and a vegetable demonstration garden where around 150 species of vegetables are showcased.
