I'm anticipating graduating Autumn 2022
My research investigates growing hydroponic leafy greens with nutrient solution pH levels that are below-traditional. The acidic nutrient solutions can still grow plants, but pathogens that cause root disease can't survive. Uptake of elements is altered by the low pH, so the goal is to improve the plant nutrition at low pH levels.
I chose OSU because I wanted to join a lab that was primarily hydroponics. Luckily, the controlled environment agriculture lab is all hydroponics.
