Throughout this week I had the opportunity to visit many farms with UA Fairbanks Plant Pathologist Dr. Jennifer McBeath and USDA Pest Control Agent Dr. Clinton Campbell. Together we planted many insect traps throughout the farms in an effort to identify pest affecting crop production in the subsequent flow of food throughout the state of Alaska.
All the while my professional colleagues listened to the concerns of farmers and noted them in an effort to seek solutions in the coming months.
All in all, this experience has helped me made many connections in key areas of interest which will assist me with my udergraduate research.
Thank you for your support.
