First Rafael Munhoz Pedroso—a graduate student in Dr. Albert Fischer's lab—was awarded first place at the California Weed Science Society's (CWSS) annual meeting for his student oral research presentation on Uncovering the Mechanism of Resistance to Propanil in Ricefield Bulrush (Schoenoplectus mucronatus (L.) Palla) from Rice Fields of California.
Then three days later, he wins first place in his section at the Southern Weed Science Society (SWSS) meeting in Savannah, Georgia for this research talk on Target-site Resistance to Propanil in Cyperus difformis L.: Implications for Management in Rice Fields of California.
“Rafael is passionate about weed science; through his lab and field research, he has made landmark contributions towards knowledge on herbicide resistance in weeds of rice” says Dr. Fischer.
At the SWSS meeting, Rafael was the sole person representing the west coast.
