On Tuesday I (and nine other students, all from the U.S.) finally got my ICPA
outstanding graduate student award at the ceremony held during lunchtime. I

not showing the cheque, though :-) My vision of Precision Agriculture which I had
to describe to receive this award has been posted here.

Queensland
. He had with him a Kiwi guy who did the other half of the talks and
just to introduce himself and some language issues he gave a slide that looked
like the following:
