More than 4,000 scientists, professionals, educators and students met in Phoenix, Arizona, this past November to attend the American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America and the Soil Science Society of America 2016 Annual Meeting.   Faculty and students involved in the UF Agroecology concentration contributed to more than 30 oral and poster presentations on research topics that ranged from ammonia volatilization in Florida pastures to vermicompost in walnut nurseries.

Specifically, three graduate students within the UF Agroecology concentration presented their research:  David Jaramillo (Forage and Grazinglands, poster and oral) on incorporating annual and perennial peanuts into Florida grasslands; Jose Rolando (Soil Fertility and Plant Nutrition, oral) on land-use change and soil fertility in the Andean Puna Grasslands; and Anastasia Vaccarro (Soil Fertility and Plant Nutrition, oral) on nitrogen fertilization of Sesame in Florida.
