80 Robert F Barnes Graduate Student Competition

Oral Session
C06 Forage and Grazinglands

This oral session provides a forum for presentations by graduate students in the C-6 division at the CSSA annual meeting. The outstanding papers will be selected by a panel of judges. The award honors Dr. Robert F Barnes, a renowned USDA-ARS forage scientist, and will be open to graduate students who choose to participate in this session. Selection will be based on quality of oral presentation and contribution of research to the division’s field of study. The goal is to recognize and support outstanding graduate students and to attract new scientists to the division and its areas of study.
