Graduate student wins poster competition

Binu Rana

NDSU Department of Plant Sciences graduate student Binu Rana was one of three winners in a poster competition that was part of the virtual 2020 North Dakota Academy of Science annual meeting on Dec. 4.

Her poster presentation, “Season Extension Using Supplemental Soil Heat in a North Dakota High Tunnel for Warm Season Vegetable Production,” highlighted how high tunnels with supplemental heat can be beneficial by enhancing crop growth, extending the season, and assisting growers in maximizing profits with intensive production practices, especially for short growing season areas like North Dakota.

Rana is working toward her master’s degree in horticulture and is advised by Harlene Hatterman-Valenti, professor and assistant department head.

The purpose of the North Dakota Academy of Science is to promote and conduct scientific research and disseminate scientific knowledge. Membership is open to people who are active or interested in a field of scientific research.
