On March 20, 2018 Prof. Maulid Walad Mwatawala from the Department of Crop Science and Horticulture  of Sokoine University of Agriculture delivered a powerful professorial inaugural lecture on Facilitating International Agricultural Trade through Science: The Case of Tephritid Flies. His lecture highlighted key research findings on fruit flies based on studies conducted at SUA in collaboration with other partners. The information that was generated by years of research is necessary to facilitate fruits trade while minimising the risks of the spread of fruit flies. The lecture showed further that this information is shared through various means including an international training on taxonomy and ecology of fruit flies.
