Kyla Bonds

Listen to KC Sheperd talk with Kyla Bonds ahead of the State FFA Convention in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

During the month of April, the Radio Oklahoma Ag Network and Oklahoma Farm Report are spotlighting the 18 Area Stars of Oklahoma FFA, who are among the highest achievers in the organization.

The stars come from the five areas in four categories- Star in Ag Placement, Star in Agriscience, Star in Agribusiness, and Star in Agricultural Production.

This week, we spotlight the five area stars in Agriscience in 2024.

One Star Finalist featured in the coming days from each of the categories will be named the State Star Award Winner during the 98th Oklahoma State FFA Convention, which will take place on May 7th and 8th in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

This week, our coverage of the 2024 Oklahoma FFA Star Award Finalists continues with Agriscience competitor Kyla Bonds of the Mustang FFA chapter representing the Southwest Area.

“I have done a variety of projects in plant systems,” Bonds said. “I have done projects over seeing if the metals in the soil have an effect on plant growth, testing different growth mediums for cabbage using hydroponic systems and just the normal traditional method as a control group.”

This year, Bonds said her project involved 100% Aglime and a water treatment Aglime. In this project, Bonds said she tested to see which treatment is more effective in raising the pH of soils.

Bonds also talked about how she is grateful for the knowledge she has gained through her projects.

“It taught me about the agricultural community and about how much of an impact it has on the world,” Bonds said.

Bonds said she plans on continuing her research at Redlands Community College, which she will attend after graduating high school.
