The 30th Annual Plant Science Graduate Student Symposium (PSGSS) was held at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada, on March 21-22, 2014.

The PSGSS is conducted each year at one of three participating universities: North Dakota State University, University of Manitoba and University of Saskatchewan. This year the University of Saskatchewan conducted the symposium under the theme “Seeding Sustainability: Nurturing Nature for a Better Future.” About 44 graduate students from the three universities attended and presented their research work in four different categories.

Five graduate students from the NDSU Department of Plant Sciences participated in two categories of oral presentation. Alison Stone, Elina Adhikari, Roshan Sharma Poudel and Sintayehu Daba presented their research work in the Plant Breeding and Genetics session. Lucas Holmes gave his presentation in the Agronomy, Weed Science and Ecology session. Roshan Sharma Poudel was awarded first place for his oral presentation. The title of Poudel’s presentation was “Backcrosses to Transfer and Pyramid Useful Genes in Winter Hardy Variety 'Norstar.’”

The trip for the NDSU students was funded by DuPont Pioneer, Monsanto, NDSU Student Government and NDSU Department of Plant Sciences.
