Mid-Florida Research and Education Center (MREC) environmental horticulture doctoral student Yuvraj Khamare placed third in the Charlie Parkerson Student Paper competition sponsored by the International Plant Propagators Society.
As part of the competition, students are asked to write and submit a scientific manuscript or paper, of which the top three are selected to be presented.
Khamare’s manuscript, ‘Growth of Liverwort (Marchantia polymorpha) and Spotted Spurge (Euphorbia maculata) Decreases with Substrate Stratification and Strategic Fertilizer Placement’, built on Khamare’s research projects involving the impact of fertilizer placement in planting containers on weed control.
“I am honored to have received such recognition from the International Plant Propagators Society, Southern Region, and am especially thankful for the opportunity to further my line of research,” Khamare said.
