2017 BIOAg Poster Session

Posters were presented at the 2017 BIOAg Symposium on a diverse array of topics by faculty and students.  Student presenters were eligible for scholarship prizes and three prizes were awarded at the event.  Winning presenters were Annie Pollard, Sabrina Judson, and Elizabeth Magill (pictured above, L-R and noted below with *).  Poster quality was very high at the event and we received so much positive feedback that we’ve linked poster PDFs here for further sharing.
