    Seed World magazine reports:

    The Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), the leading professional association in analytics and operations research, and Syngenta, announce a new, joint award. The Syngenta Crop Challenge will focus on ways that analytics can address the problem of feeding millions of people throughout the world who face hunger every day.

    "This new competition will give our members the chance to apply their considerable talent in analytics to the terrible worldwide problem of hunger and poverty," says Glenn Wegryn, President of the INFORMS Analytics Section and Executive Director of the Center for Business Analytics at the University of Cincinnati Carl H. Lindner College of Business.

    The winner of the first competition will be announced at the 2016 INFORMS Annual Meeting and receive a $5,000 prize.
