Each spring the plant science graduate students put on a symposium comprised of poster and oral presentation to showcase their research and improve upon their presenting skills. Each portion of the symposium is judged by faculty from the various plant science departments. This year two of our weed science students placed in the competition. Alex Lindsey came in 3rd place for the Applied Oral Presentation section for his talk entitled, “Tuber production and weed competition as influenced by dairy compost. Alicia Spangler came in 3rd place in the Applied Poster Presentation section for her poster entitled, “The effect of nitrogen and time of weed removal on sugarbeet yield and quality in glyphosate-resistant sugarbeet. Congratulations!
