ARDMORE, Okla. -- The Noble Research Institute is known for its work in agriculture. It hosts an internship program every summer.

Lloyd Noble Scholars in Agriculture were paired up with mentors to work on projects. Mason Brinson came from North Carolina to work on a project dealing with prescribed burns.

"I was researching to find out what time during the summer is best to burn in order to better utilize our forages during the winter months," she said.

Another project examined something called "mob grazing." 

"It can be an awesome way to graze cattle; it can also be a little challenging in a few different ways, but it's a pretty cool process," said Texas scholar Richard Duncan.

The internship program has gained a lot of attention, with more applicants each year. Scholars say the experience gained from the program is significant.

Applications will be accepted for the 2020 Lloyd Noble Scholars in Agriculture program beginning in October. The successful candidates will be announced in April following interviews.
