Jacob Schindler, a sixteen year old at Lowndes County High School, may have the key to breaking kudzu's long hold on Southern terrain. The junior uses helium to eradicate kudzu with a device he designed that allows him to drill into the ground with a small tank of helium and evenly distribute it to the kudzu. All of this happens without harming other plants. What started out as a science fair project when we was only in sixth grade, may have turned into an entrepreneurial endeavor that could change agriculture (and his life) forever.
