Upgrades of NMSU nematode lab to help local growers

Thanks to funding from the United States Department of Agriculture, the New Mexico State University Department of Entomology, Plant Pathology and Weed Science has made considerable upgrades to its nematode containment facility in Skeen Hall. “The lab is a resource for Southwest producers, to provide them with the certification of sites being free of nematodes,” NMSU Distinguished Professor Steve Thomas said. “It’s a way to work with any pests introduced at any time.” Nematodes are worms – most of which are microscopic – that are parasites living in animals, plants, soil or water.

Former New Mexico State men's basketball power forward Pascal Siakam secured his name into Aggie lore on Thursday after being selected in the first round by the Toronto Raptors as the 27th pick overall in the 2016 NBA Draft. Siakam is just the third player in NM State history and the first in 46 years to be drafted in the first round since Sam Lacey (fifth overall) and Jimmy Collins (11th) in 1970. The Douala, Cameroon, native is also the first NM State player drafted in the NBA since Randy Brown, who was the fourth pick in the second round of the 1991 NBA Draft.
