|Project Title: Soil and Root Responses to Control Traffic Management in Croplands
Supervisors: Dr. Guillermo, Hernandez Ramirez (Assistant Professor). Department Renewable Resources.
Control traffic is a farming system that establishes specific tramlines in croplands for the recurrent operation of agricultural machinery. This can be seen as a step beyond no-tillage management and as an improved practice towards precision agriculture.
I am seeking a responsible student interested in the project.
Knowledge of soils and roots,
Proactive and flexible,
Willingness to undertake scientific approaches, to engage data analyses and to develop scientific writing skills.
A teamwork attitude--ability to work independently and with others,
A desire to present results in public,
A 3.5 GPA or better, and
A valid driver's license and clean driving record/abstract
Field summer work will be in several farms across Alberta. Lab work will involve instrumentation to describe soil and root responses.
Please e-mail transcripts (scanned unofficial copy), CV, a letter describing any research experience and interests (1-page), and two references.
