Ms Kimberly Jennings (23), B Sc (Hons) student in the Department of Soil, Crop and Climate Sciences at the University of the Free State (UFS), was recently awarded the medal for the best oral paper by an author under 30 years old at the combined conference of the Soil and Crop Science Societies held at the University of Kwan-Zulu-Natal Howard College campus.

The conference was attended by 290 national and international delegates who contributed 150 papers on a wide range of subjects. Ms Jennings' paper discussed the redox behaviour of a Kroonstad soil form in the Weatherley catchment. The research was partly funded by the Water Research Commission.
