Comments from Ms. Pattarasuda Chayapakdee
I made an oral presentation on the first day. Many researchers were interested in my research. They gave me very good suggestions and asked me for research collaboration. We had opportunity to share the data and discuss the future research project together. When the student presentation awards were announced. I won the oral presentation award 2nd place. That made me become recognized as the outstanding new generation weed scientist. From this conference, I have received a lot of knowledge and motivation to do research in this field.
