The Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS) Graduate Fellowship was developed to provide financial support and recognition for future leaders, researchers, and contributors in sustainable agriculture and local food systems while they engage in academic research to further the field of study.

Stephanie Sosinski | Master’s Student | Crop and Soil Sciences | NC State University

Stephanie Sosinski

Stephanie is pursuing her MS degree in Crop Science while working as the research technician for the Forage and Grassland Program. Her research project focuses on nitrogen management in a crabgrass hay-production system, evaluating the effects of nitrogen application rate and source (synthetic nitrogen fertilizer and poultry litter) on forage productivity, nutritive value, and weed competition. The overall objectives of this research project are to: 1) evaluate plant and soil responses to nitrogen fertilizer rate and source in a crabgrass hay-production system and 2) assess the effects of nitrogen fertilization on weed competition for crabgrass during the establishment phase. This information will be critical towards providing livestock producers and Extension agents with general nutrient management guidelines for crabgrass hay production that are best suited for North Carolina growing conditions.
