UW-Platteville Crop Team Competes in Australia
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 10/18/2016
Three University of Wisconsin-Platteville collegiate crops team members represented the United States in the recent Australian Collegiate Crops Contest.
Joel Dieckhoff, a soil and crop science major from Brodhead; Emily Hefty, a soil and crop science major from Mount Horeb; and Katelynn Mauk, a soil and crop science/environmental science double major from Sheboygan earned their spots on the team after
receiving top placings in the national contests sponsored by the American Society of Agronomy and Crop Science of America.
The students visited a variety of Australian agricultural sites including an irrigated rice farm, the Yanco Agricultural Institute, the Coleambally Irrigation Cooperative, a grain terminal, a cattle feedlot, and several farms with mixed cropping and livestock production
systems, among others.
