Brandi Sigmon operates her homemade cob scanner in the shed at her rural Pickrell home. She is producing 2D and 3D scans of more between 2000 and 3000 cobs of 200 varieties. The visual record shows the cob development according to nitrogen rates applied. Sigmon and her husband, Benny Mote, built the scanner to help further a maize study during the university’s facility shutdown. She is assisted by her son, Wyatt, 7. Sigmon is an Assistant Professor of Practice in Plant Pathology. Research continues as the work moves off campus. April 14, 2020. Photo by Craig Chandler / University Communication.
