NDSU plant sciences graduate student Amanda Crook was awarded second place in the Horticulture and Ornamentals division in the graduate student poster competition at the 70th annual North Central Weed Science Society meeting held in Indianapolis Dec. 7-10. Her poster was titled "Marketability Effects from Simulated Glyphosate Drift Injury to Red Norland Potato."
Crook, who is a master's degree student from Brandon, Manitoba, also presented a paper titled “Simulated Glyphosate Drift in Red Norland Seed Potato Fields Affects Daughter Tubers." She won first place in the paper competition in 2014, so was not eligible to enter her paper in the competition this year.
Crook's adviser is Harlene Hatterman-Valenti, professor and high value crops project leader.
