Karen Lindsay, a graduate student in agricultural economics and agribusiness in the Dale Bumpers College of Agricultural, Food and Life Sciences, successfully defended her thesis titled "Decision Support for Palmer Amaranth Weed Control." 

Under the guidance of her adviser, Michael Popp, she co-developed a decision-support software program, Palmer Amaranth Management. This program is designed to highlight the long-term implications of management practices on soil seed banks and economics as a means of promoting the adoption of IPM methods for managing Palmer amaranth among crop producers and educators in the Mid-Southern U.S. 

Originally from Houston, Karen moved to Fayetteville in 1992 and currently considers it her home. She graduated from the University of Arkansas in May of 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture in agricultural business management and marketing and now hopes to continue working towards a successful career developing decision-support software to address farm, community, and agribusiness problems.
