We are delighted that our lab has received funding from the ND Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to investigate how soil microbiomes can be managed to improve fertilizer-use efficiency and groundwater quality in agricultural systems.
We welcome Hunter Ripplinger, a new graduate student from Mandan, North Dakota. Hunter will be working on the effect of different manures on soil microbial dynamics.
We welcome Sakshi Paudel, a new graduate student from Nepal. Sakshi will be working in the ND Agricultural Microbiome project.
