BYU-Idaho Students Involved in Farm Research


REXBURG, Idaho (AP) – Brigham Young University-Idaho agronomy students participate in a wide range of crops studies to make farming easier and more cost-effective for growers.

Their studies are conducted in cooperation with agribusinesses or research universities such as the University of Idaho. The goal of the studies is to provide a service for Idaho’s agricultural community and improve students’ ability to do agronomy research.

After months of planting, monitoring and information gathering, students are finalizing the initial findings from more than a dozen studies. Students presented their projects last week to industry professionals, university professors and students in Rexburg.

The Post Register reports that some of the projects have potentially far-reaching effects because the program includes international students who are learning advanced agricultural practices to take back to their home countries.
