Associate Specialist Pedro Andrade Sanchez leads the statewide program to increase the efficiency of mechanized agricultural operations. Here he tests equipment to evaluate plant growth status in the field. Extension activities of Pedro and other ABE faculty aim to impact growers and farmers throughout the state.
Students learn advanced concepts in evaluating soils for installing onsite wastewater treatment (septic) systems. Sixteen advanced students from around the state participated in a 2-day course in Payson, AZ, to learn about issues relating to soil and site evaluation of onsite wastewater treatment systems. This new offering by the University of Arizona’s Onsite Wastewater Education Program, directed by Dr. Kitt Farrell-Poe of the Agricultural & Biosystems Engineering Department, provided classroom and field experience. Here you see students in soil pits evaluating the soil for texture, structure, and consistence.
Please join the department in congratulating Peishih Liang, PhD in Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering (Fall 2013), for being selected to receive the 2014-ASABE Superior Paper Award. We are also proud of the Co-Author, Dr. Jeong Yeol Yoon. -8APR2014
