As we transitioning to harvest season, lets take a look back at our projects and accomplishments from the summer. We had field locations in: Courtland, MN; Glyndon, MN; Galchutt, ND; Mandan, ND; and Oakes, ND. The field locations made up about 25 acres that we completed our research on. Some of the highlights from our summer were:
- Testing out our new seed indexer for planting
- Laying out 9 miles of drip tape in 1 day
- Field tours and visiting scientist
- Seeing a tornado at the field
- Planting our first Silphium yield trial
- Beginning research on UAVs for Sunflower
We could not have accomplished all this without help from our interns. We have enjoyed having this group for the summer and teaching them about sunflower research. They were excellent both professionally and socially. Our lab appreciates employees who are both outstanding workers and maintain an enjoyable work culture. This group was both and made this summer one of the most successful at the Hulke Lab. Below are some pictures of our summer.
Stay Tuned… Our goal for the summer was to make all the interns complete a project that they can present on at the end of summer. We are happy to announce that we accomplished this goal. Last week, we had the interns present about their project and what they learned this summer. Stay tuned for updates about each project.
