Ortiz research on 3D printing weeds featured in PenBay Pilot, Morning Ag Clips

The Penobscot Bay Pilot and Morning Ag Clips featured Sonora Ortiz, an undergraduate at the University of Maine whose research focuses on developing artificial weeds using 3D printing and nanocoating technology with the goal of improving physical weed removal and reducing the need for pesticides. Ortiz was recently awarded the 2022 John Jachetta Undergraduate Research Award from the Weed Science Society of America for their research.
