On Oct 28th, in conjunction with the “Saving Nature and Improving Agriculture – Where does Nature’s Wisdom Lie?” symposium, the BIOAg poster session drew a wide variety of high quality, engaging, informative posters. Best of all, a large number of posters were presented by WSU students and were therefore eligible to compete for scholarship awards. Posters were judged by committee and the winners are listed below:
Cedric Habiyaremye for the poster: Effect of irrigation on plant height, maturity, and seed yield of 20 diverse millet varieties. Habiyaremye, Barth, Highet, & Murphy.
Jesse Wimer for the poster: Evaluation of watermelon rootstocks for resistance to verticillium wilt in northwestern Washington. Wimer, Miles & Inglis.
Elias Bloom for the poster: Diversity of native bees in urban and rural diversified farming systems. Bloom & Crowder.
Gregory Astill for the poster: Transforming pollutants into products; economic feasibility of anaerobic digester systems on US dairies. Astill & Shumway.
