Jacob J. Muir successfully defended his Plant Sciences M.S. thesis, Nitrogen Sources and Their Management on Wheat Yield and Protein, on April 9, 2020 at North Dakota State University. He was advised by Dr. Joel Ransom, professor and Extension agronomist.

Muir’s research compared Environmentally Smart Nitrogen (ESN) with other nitrogen sources for nitrogen fertilizer management in wheat. The results showed ESN-treated wheat to have a slight increase in yield and protein compared to other sources tested. 

Muir is originally from Rexburg, Idaho and earned his undergraduate degree in Agronomy at Brigham Young University. He chose to pursue his graduate degree at NDSU because he liked the opportunities NDSU had to offer and it was “one of the bigger agriculture departments in the country with a great curriculum and a great database of ongoing and past research.”

Muir is currently employed as a store manager of Spudnik Equipment (agricultural equipment) in Heyburn, Idaho.

His graduate committee members were Ransom, Dr. Hans Kandel, Dr. David Franzen, and Dr. Burton Johnson.
