Kevin Falk was this year’s American Seed Trade Association 1st place video winner! He was awarded on December 3rd, and we are so proud of this amazing accomplishment. Kevin’s concept was about setting the record straight on common misconceptions in the seed industry. He focused specifically chose whether farmers can recycle their seed in following years, their interactions with big companies and the intellectual property that those big companies hold with regards to seed. He used the public to ask his questions about the misconception and he also used Agronomy Graduate Students to describe how the misconceptions are wrong, what they do and their goal towards helping farmers.
Our Katelyn Fritz, senior, was selected as the first-place winner of the American Seed Trade Association's "Better Seed, Better Life" student video competition. Katelyn's focus is in plant breeding and biotechnology.
Katelyn produced the video during her internship with Semilla Nueva, a small nonprofit working to sustainably overcome chronic malnutrition in Guatemala through biofortified corn.
