UMD students track effects on wild rice

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

DULUTH, MN — Sunshine and studying don’t usually mix well, but it was the perfect pairing Thursday for UMD students out researching wild rice.

The 10-week project is happening at UMD’s farm land off Jean Duluth Road.

There, students spent the day collecting soil samples alongside a UMD grad student.

The work will help find the effects of sulfur and sulfides on wild rice.

“This kind of work is very meaningful,” Arianna Northbird, a UMD student, said. “This is a community based project, so what we’re doing here is very beneficial for the tribe and the community around us.”

After their hands-on research, students will write a paper and make a poster. They’ll eventually present it to several agencies, including Fond du Lac tribal scientists.
