A team from North Dakota State University competed in the North Central Weed Science Society and Corteva Agriscience weed contest this past weekend. NDSU crop and weed science major Adam Aberle took first place in the weed identification portion and second place overall in the undergraduate individual performance. “I’m pleased with myself, happy with the day and it was nice to connect with other students and weed scientists across the country.” Aberle says the experience requires focus, but it is very enjoyable. “At the end of the day, it’s a learning experience and it’s going to help you advance further in your career in the future. It’s a great experience overall.” Aberle will be pursuing his master’s degree at NDSU starting in the fall. Thanks to the Iowa Agribusiness Radio Network for the audio and photo.
