Last week at the Ontario Pest Management Conference, Lauren Benoit, graduate students in the weed management program at Ridgetown Campus, received the 1st place award in the graduate student paper presentation section.
The title of Lauren's presentation was "Occurrence and distribution of waterhemp (Amaranthus tuberculatus var. rudis) from Ontario and Quebec resistant to herbicides spanning four modes-of-action and control using HPPD-inhibiting herbicides." This is a significant achievement as she had to compete against graduate students from various Departments/Schools in OAC.
Lauren is an excellent representatives of the graduate students at the University of the Guelph, Ridgetown Campus.
