Brescia students convert algae to fertilizer

OWENSBORO, Ky. — Brescia University doesn’t have an agriculture department, but four Brescia students have developed a plan they say will save small farms on their fertilizer costs.

Helen Bennett, the school’s director of career services, said the students were invited to enter the Alltech Innovation Competition April 11 at Bluegrass Community and Technical College in Lexington.

She said the students were notified in February and given two months to prepare business plans on “innovative ideas in food and agribusiness that will improve economies, create jobs, elevate efficiencies and foster sustainable practices.”
