The 'most worthy' poster at the 2016 Agronomic Conference had an unusual topic

This year's winner, as voted for by the Conference delegates, was by Endla Reintam of the Estonian University of Life Sciences. It's topic was the effect of fertilisation and field crops on earthworms.

This poster shows the results of measuring how the abundance, biomass and species biodiversity of earthworms were affected by different fertilisation regimes, under both conventional and organic farming systems.

The conclusion was, perhaps, surprising.  The poster can be viewed here.
