National Trips1999 ASA Conference

Morrisville State College students traveled to Salt Lake City, Utah for the National Agronomy Conference in November of 1999. Funds for the trip were raised through the Soil Testing Laboratory that is run by the Agronomy and Agricultural Science students.  In 2000, six students attended the national meeting of the American Society of Agronomy (ASA) in Minneapolis.  The 2001 annual meeting will be held in Charlotte, NC (October 21 - 25, 2001).

GPS/GIS Technology Lab

Morrisville State College operates a GPS/GIS Technology Laboratory to train students in this cutting-edge technology. This Laboratory is managed and operated by college students. The Laboratory provides mapping service to farmers and other interested parties for a fee.

Soil Testing Lab

Morrisville State College students run a Soil Testing Laboratory which offers its services to farmers and interested parties. The Laboratory is equipped with the resources for testing the levels of organic matter, pH, P, K, Ca, and Mg.  The Laboratory is run by a soil testing board comprised of interested and dedicated students. The revenues are used to fund our club's activities (click here to see pictures from the Open House that was held on Tuesday - December 4, 2001).
