Local High School Student Gains Field and Lab Experience over Summer

Riley measures buckwheat height in experimental plots

Greenhills School Advanced Research student Riley Noble joined the Blesh Lab for the summer and quickly found himself up to his ears– or at least his knees– in buckwheat! Riley collected data on plant growth rates, leaf nitrogen, and biomass production of buckwheat planted after a winter cover crop trial. Now that he’s done the dirty work, he will take his data back to Greenhills and analyze the numbers in his Advanced Research class this fall. We look forward to hearing about what he finds!

  1. Super program for high school students! And, a great introduction to working in U. Michigan’s Blesh Agroecology Lab. Hope there will be more to come. Great job by Dr. Blesh and staff.
