May 21, 2008, Guelph, Ont. – Manure research in Canada is getting a leg up with the help of a Syngenta graduate student scholarship.
Syngenta has awarded a scholarship to University of Manitoba M.Sc. student Abimbola Ojekanmi, who is looking at the impact of long-term manure application on soil and water quality. He will track the nutrient phosphorus in soil and water for two years to determine what application rates could put water quality at risk.
Other students receiving scholarships include University of Alberta Ph.D. candidate Brandon Schaufele for his upcoming research into price risk in food production, and Nova Scotia Agricultural College M.Sc. student Jennifer Roper who is looking at the importance of no till production for both farmers and the environment.
Scholarships in sustainable agriculture are a component of the Syngenta Giving Back to Agriculture Program. To find out more about the Giving Back Program, visit www.syngenta.ca.
