In April, the Agronomy Graduate Student Association (AGSA) under the guidance of faculty adviser, Dr. Esteban Rios, organized a research symposium highlighting graduate student research in the Agronomy Department. A wide range of disciplines were covered including crop physiology and nutrition, weed science, plant breeding and genetics, and forage science. A total of 19 students participated (73% higher than last year!) by giving 4-5-minute rapid presentations followed by questions.
