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:

FIRST PLACE:

Cedric Habiyaremye for the poster: Effect of irrigation on plant height, maturity, and seed yield of 20 diverse millet varieties. Habiyaremye, Barth, Highet, & Murphy.

SECOND PLACE:

Jesse Wimer for the poster: Evaluation of watermelon rootstocks for resistance to verticillium wilt in northwestern Washington. Wimer, Miles & Inglis.

HONORABLE MENTION:
