Four North Dakota State University Agronomy Club students won awards during the 2014 international annual meeting of the American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America and Soil Science Society of America in Long Beach, Calif.

Jodi Boe, a senior crop and weed sciences major, took first place in the collegiate crops judging contest. In this event, contestants compete in plant and seed identification, commercial grain grading and seed analysis.

The Agronomy Club placed second in the Quiz Bowl team event. Team members include Boe; Justin Zahradka, a junior crop and weed sciences major; John Breker, a senior soil science major; and Nevada Turbiville, a senior crop and weed sciences major.

In the Quiz Bowl contest, teams of four earn points by answering questions on agronomy, crops, soils, and plant and environmental sciences.

The Agronomy Club is advised by Kirk Howatt, NDSU crop and weed sciences undergraduate coordinator and weed science associate professor.

More than 4,000 scientists, professionals, educators and students attended the annual meeting. Of those, 370 were undergraduate students.

The undergraduate student organization, Students of Agronomy, Soils and Environmental Sciences, held its annual meeting concurrently with the larger conference.
