Day in the Field

Today we went out into the field and collected wild rice samples to bring back to the lab. To ensure that the roots samples were anoxic, we submerged them into buckets that had Nitrogen gas pumps. We ripped off the shoots to keep the roots, making sure they were fully blocked from any oxygen. The deionized water bucket and nitrogen tank were quite heavy, though us ladies pushed through! We also have a friendly visit from the farm dog, Loki.20170621_140411
