"Alexander Schaller wins "BioWorks IPM/Sustainable Practices Scholarship"

BioWorks, a customer-focused provider of biopesticides and plant nutrition products, congratulates Alexander Schaller as the recipient of the American Floral Endowment “BioWorks IPM/Sustainable Practices Scholarship”. AFE awarded seventeen students in 2016 with scholarships totaling more than $35,000.

Alexander is a senior at the University of Arizona in the Plant Sciences Department with a double major in sustainable plant systems and agriculture economics and management. He is interested in ornamental and floriculture crop breeding and crop physiology. “After I receive an advanced degree, I will continue to find ways to improve methods, production and distribution of goods in the field of floriculture,” said Schaller.

The BioWorks IPM/Sustainable Practices Scholarship is intended for sophomore, junior or senior students pursuing a career in floriculture. Students are selected on the basis of sound academic performance and a GPA of 3.0 or higher. While not mandatory, it is strongly desired that the student be interested in furthering the use of integrated pest management (IPM) or sustainable practices.
