Lindell Contributes to GROW

Ph.D. student, Hannah Lindell, recently contributed an article to online integrated weed magazine GROW.

GROW (Getting Rid of Weeds) is a scientist-led network coordinating research to help farmers across the U.S. fight herbicide-resistance with a greater diversity of weed control strategies to complement chemical use.

GROW aims to provide information on tools such as cover crops, increased crop competition, harvest weed seed control, and more.

Lindell is advised by Dr. Nick Basinger.
