Aaron Froemke successfully defended his plant sciences M.S. thesis, Horseweed (Erigeron Canadensis) Control in No-till Soybean Systems on a Coarse Textured Soil, on April 14, 2020 at North Dakota State University. His advisor is Dr. Kirk Howatt.

The purpose of Froemke’s research was to study horseweed growth stage response to foliar-active and residual herbicides, fall applications and the utility of differing herbicide technologies. 

Froemke completed a B.S. degree in crop and weed sciences and enjoyed working with the friendly and helpful faculty and staff at NDSU. He has enjoyed living in Fargo, which is close to his hometown of Lisbon, ND, and recommends the graduate program to anyone who is interested in crop and weed sciences.

While completing his M.S. degree, Froemke received several awards and scholarships. In 2019, he was awarded first place in the problem solving graduate student contest at the North Central Weed Science Society Student Weed Contest. He received the North Dakota Soybean Council Graduate Scholarship in 2018 and the Dr. John D. and Donna Nalewaja Plant Sciences Graduate Scholarship Endowment in 2018 and 2019.

Froemke has accepted the research technician position with the NDSU soybean breeding program and began work on May 1.

His graduate committee included Howatt, Dr. Brian Jenks, Dr. Ted Helms and Dr. Tom DeSutter.
