Congratulations to Lia and Lauren on recent scholarships and awards!
Lia is the 2020 recipient of the American Society of Agronomy Nelson Yield Limiting Factors Graduate Student Scholarship. The Nelson Scholarship is awarded to students pursuing research and careers in support of the diagnosis of yield-limiting factors in agronomy.
Lauren was awarded the NACTA Graduate Teaching Award. The NACTA Graduate Student Teaching Award is a criterion-based award and is reviewed by a committee of NACTA members. To qualify for the award, a graduate student must have been involved in classroom teaching for a minimum of one year.

Welcome to Vyn Labs!
Here we share who we are, what we've been learning, and the latest updates on our research.
The primary mission of the Cropping Systems Lab is to critically evaluate potentially sustainable agricultural technologies for field crop production from the relevant perspectives of genotype by environment by management system interactions that farmers encounter. In pursuit of that overall mission, our research group endeavors to use our talents and resources to
(a) advance the scientific understanding of plant response mechanisms to specific crop inputs,
(b) enhance the sustainability of crop production practices in the Eastern Corn Belt,
(c) train great students who can contribute to the future growth of even more sustainable crop production practices.
