Two graduate students in the Department of Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering (FABE) at The Ohio State University received the Presentation Excellence Award earlier this month from the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) Annual International Meeting that took place in July.
Farmers, landowners, farm organizations, community members and researchers from different disciplines across four universities gathered recently to kick-off the Pilot Watershed Project in the Shallow Run Watershed.
A team of Ohio State University students majoring in food, agricultural, and biological engineering (FABE) received first place in the Northeast Agricultural and Biological Engineering Conference's (NABEC) Undergraduate Design Competition, held in Guelph, Ontario, Canada last month.
Satvik Kethireddy and Saisiri Panjugala represented the team, which also included FABE students Justin Davis and Cassidy Brozovich, to present their project titled, "NASA X-Hab Plant Extraction for Future Genomic Sequencing Onboard Space Flights."
The Ohio State University Department of Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering (FABE) is proud to introduce Lorrayne Miralha as an assistant professor starting in the Autumn 2023 semester!
We sat down with Lorrayne last week to learn more about her background, research areas, what she likes to do outside of work, and why FABE was a great fit for her.
Jaden Tatum is researching grain drying and storage for developing countries for her dissertation, while also investigating shallow geothermal heating and cooling systems in Ohio greenhouses. In both cases, she won several grants from the university and beyond to help with research and putting these exciting topics in action.
Last month, at the 2023 American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) Annual International Meeting in Omaha, Nebraska, the 2022 International Drainage Hall of Fame inductees Dan Jaynes and Charlie Schafer were honored by their peers.
The second Drainage Installation Field Day at The Ohio State University at Lima brought out close to 100 farmers, engineers, contractors and researchers from around northwest Ohio and across the state to learn more about the installation of sub-surface drainage tile systems and their modern uses. Volunteer contractors worked throughout the day to install 27,000 feet of perforated drain pipes across 25 acres at the Ohio State Lima Regenerative Agriculture Farm.
The Ohio State University Department of Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering (FABE) Ph.D. candidate Daisy D'Angelo recently received a $4,000 university scholarship from the Compost Research and Education Foundation (CREF) for her work to improve compost marketability.
The Buckeye Precollege Institutes, held throughout the month of June on Ohio State's campuses, allow pre-college students to get a head start on the college experience by exploring new academic subjects, interacting on campus with peers from across the U.S., and experiencing engaging, intensive courses taught by Ohio State faculty and staff.
The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES), Nationwide, and the Ohio Farm Bureau joined forces to establish the AgTech Innovation Hub, a groundbreaking multimillion-dollar research collaboration. The partnership, unveiled during the 2023 Farm Science Review, aims to drive the development of innovative solutions that enhance the agricultural ecosystem while fostering a deeper understanding of and effective management and mitigation strategies for climate risks.
