evokeAG 2020 - Future Young Leaders - Maddison Clonan
“I aspire to create agriculture sectors globally, that are progressive, engaged and diverse and that are made up of all areas of food production."
“Sectors without segmentation and that adhere to the true definition of sustainable agriculture.”
Maddison is a passionate horticultural researcher with the NT Department of Primary Industry and Resources and studies the effects of supply chain processes on post-harvest mango quality and the dependency of mango flowering on temperature. She is currently focused on developing knowledge in these key areas for new mango varieties and identifying risks to mango production under future climate conditions.
Maddison is also involved in similar research in Southeast Asia through projects with the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research. She is a passionate advocate for sustainable agricultural practices that empower communities, improve nutritional diversity and preserve natural resources; and is driven to engage and inspire people in the rewarding and far-reaching world of agriculture.”
