Aggies Create Tools
Make an impact in Land & Environment
Utah State University’s Dr. Ricardo Ramirez leads students in research to create tools, like biopesticides, to help farmers combat destructive insects. His students work to understand pests’ development. Similar to Ramirez’s students, the university inspires more than 1,000 students to pursue their own research projects every year.
At USU, students embrace the opportunities offered by collaboration and are given opportunities to work closely with research faculty. These students go on to be award winners in their respective fields just like Idowu Atoloye, a graduate student in USU’s Department of Plants, Soils and Climate, who was awarded the Nelson Yield-Limiting Factors Graduate Student Scholarship by the American Society of Agronomy at its annual conference.
