Plant Sciences M.S. student Amanda Crook competed in the graduate student poster competition at the 70th Annual North Central Weed Science Society (NCWSS) meeting held in Indianapolis Dec. 7-10. She was awarded second place in the Horticulture and Ornamentals division for her poster titled "Marketability Effects from Simulated Glyphosate Drift Injury to Red Norland Potato".

Crook 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, from Brandon, Manitoba, is advised by Dr. Harlene Hatterman-Valenti, professor and high value crops project leader.

The NCWSS is comprised of weed science industry professionals from 15 U.S states and one Canadian province. The mission of the NCWSS is to deliver research, education, and training to persons responsible for weeds and their management in land use systems. For more information, visit http://ncwss.org/.
