Rice paddies installed on CANR campus

April 28, 2015--Twelve paddies have been created at UD’s new Rice Investigation, Communication and Education (RICE) Facility, an outdoor laboratory on the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) campus to assist in arsenic research.

The paddies were installed through a prestigious five-year $465,000 National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development Award received by Angelia Seyfferth, an assistant professor in the Department of Plant and Soil Sciences. It was the first such award given to a CANR professor.
