Three Oklahoma State University students proved they know their weed.
The ag students won the top three spots in the 2007 Southern Weed Society Undergraduate Contest last month in Vero Beach, Fla.
But seriously, this contest was tough work. The students had to match herbicides to plant symptoms and take a written test on sprayer calibration that was so difficult, it served to “weed out” all but the top contenders.
The winning weed scientists were OSU students Josh Bushong, Amber Brewe and Cody Massey.
Kudos to their knowledge of kudzu!
