Adam Winchester presented his Plant Sciences M.S. thesis, Improving Efficacy of Metribuzin and Rimsulfuron in Potato Production on Friday, March 4, 2016 . Winchester researched the effects of adjuvants combined with two different post-emergent herbicides, metribuzin and rimsulfuron, and the effects of combining two fungicides (chlorothalonil and mancozeb) with metribuzin, on weed control in potatoes and potato crop yield and safety. His weed control research focused particularly on hairy nightshade control.

Winchester became interested in researching adjuvants and herbicides after taking a weed science course while working towards his B.S. at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

While attending NDSU, Winchester was a member of the Plant Sciences Graduate Student Association.

Following degree completion, Adam will return home to Idaho Falls, Idaho to work as a greenhouse/lab technician for Potato Seed Solutions/Potandon Produce.

Adam Winchester’s graduate committee members were Dr. Harlene Hatterman-Valenti, Dr. Richard Zollinger, Dr. James Hammond, and Dr. Gary Secor. He was advised by Dr. Andrew Robinson.
