NDSU graduate students Sam Bibby and Lucas Alexandre Batista won awards for their research posters at the 2021 American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America and Soil Science Society of America international meeting held Nov. 7-10 in Salt Lake City, Utah. A limited virtual option also was available to participants.

Bibby received second place in the Robert F. Barnes Graduate Education Awards Competition for his poster, “Corn-Alfalfa Intercropping with Different Row Spacings.” The award recognizes graduate students who give outstanding presentations and make contributions to research in the Forage and Grazing Lands Division of the CSSA.

Bibby is a research specialist in the Department of Plant Sciences and is pursuing his master’s degree advised by Marisol Berti, professor and leader of the NDSU forages and biomass production research program.

Alexandre Batista received third place in the CSSA Crop Breeding and Genetics Division Graduate Student Poster Competition for his poster, “Applying High Throughput Phenotyping in Hard Red Spring Wheat Breeding in Early-Generations.” Selection of award recipients was based on presentation of the research, interpretation of results and visual appeal of the poster. Cash awards were presented to the first, second, and third place winners.

Alexandre Batista is a master’s degree student advised by Andrew Green, assistant professor and leader of the NDSU hard spring wheat breeding program.
