Here’s why Kevin Falk Thinks Plant Breeders Should put Their Relationships First

-

Kevin Falk is a PhD candidate studying soybean breeding at Iowa State University.

We sat down today with Iowa State University plant breeder and 2018 Borlaug Scholar Kevin Falk at the National Association of Plant Breeders 2018 meeting in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. He tells us why we need to look more thoroughly at soybean root system architecture and why plant breeders should put special emphasis on forming strong personal relationships.

    I listened to your podcast. Well done! It certainly is good to see a farm boy doing his PhD, but still passionate about farming and the farmers.
    Your studies re root architecture are interesting. Will it make plants more adaptable to diverse weather conditions? If the plant goes a massive root system, does it delay crop maturity? Happy to hear that you are having a productive stay at Iowa state university
