The Walloon Agricultural Research Centre in Gembloux, Belgium is holding their annual training course from 13 to 17 March 2017.
The training contains a complete overview of the theory of the spectroscopic and chemometric methods most commonly used. This will be completed with dynamical practical sessions in multidisciplinary laboratories (NIR, MIR, Raman, HIS, …) which will give you several tips and tricks useful when dealing with spectroscopy and chemometrics. The course is limited to 20!
The Research Center is carrying out experiments to reduce the greenhouse gases from agriculture and especially dairy cows. The milk mid-infrared spectra are used to estimate the individual methane production. These determinations will allow a better management of the herds, an optimization of the ratios and a tool for breeding programs.
