  4. Graduate Students Priyanka Mittapelly (Dept. of Entomology) and Kelsey Scott (Dept. of Plant Pathology) Win Awards

    Jun 7, 2017

    Graduate Students who are studying with faculty in the Center for Soybean Research in the CFAES have won awards. Priyanka Mittapelly (Ph.D. candidate) received an OARDC Graduate Seeds Grant to help in her efforts to identify potential new mechanisms for controlling the invasive insect pest, brown marmorated stink bug. Brown marmorated stink bug feeds on a wide range of Ohio’s cultivated crops, including soybean. When these insects feed late in the season they cause shriveled seed and delayed maturity with yield losses of greater than 30% in side-by-side comparisons. Ms.
