BATON ROUGE, La. — ERDC Environmental Laboratory (EL) Research Biologist Dr. Christopher Mudge recently presented "Aquatic Weed Control in Louisiana and the Gulf States: Research and Partnership" to the Louisiana State University (LSU) School of Plant, Environmental, and Soil Sciences (SPESS).

The seminar highlighted EL Chemical Control Physiological Processes Team capabilities, as well as current aquatic weed control research.

In attendance were members of the LSU Agriculture Center and SPESS faculty, as well as staff and graduate students of the department.

In February, an Educational Partnership Agreement (EPA) was formed between EL and the LSU Agriculture Center. Mudge serves as the EPA partnership program manager. Goals of the EPA include promotion of academic achievement, cooperative funding and research opportunities for ERDC scientists and LSU faculty, and the development of new partnerships with other state and federal agencies in Louisiana and the Gulf Coast Region.
