Kayla Griffith won two Graduate Student scholarships from the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources this summer! Kayla's research focuses on improving the efficiency of nitrogen cycling in farms by introducing cover crop mixtures in the fall (that include radishes and grains). She is conducting detailed experiments in both the greenhouse and the field to measure the fate and rate of nitrogen loss.
She was awarded the Dean's Fellowship ($5,000) for excellence in scholarship and leadership and a Graduate Student Scholarship ($2,000) for conducting research with direct impacts on Maryland's farms and natural resources.
Way to go, Kayla!
