Jason W. Adams presented his Plant Sciences Ph.D. thesis, Characterization of Surfactant Quality and Validation of Standard Water Conditioning Testing, on May 3, 2018.

Adams studied the performance of surfactants used in herbicide formulations and was able to validate the standard method of water conditioning testing used at North Dakota State University.

After completing his M.S. with Rod Lym, professor and perennial weed control researcher, Adams began his Ph.D. work with Rich Zollinger, recently retired professor and NDSU Extension weed specialist. He says the weed science research program at NDSU is great and that the department is home to top notch scientists in every field of study. Originally from Glendale, Arizona, Adams came to NDSU after completing a B.S. in ecology at Brigham Young University in Idaho.

During his graduate program, Adams was inducted into Gamma Sigma Delta  in 2014, and received the NDSU College of Agriculture, Food Systems and natural Resources John D. Nalewaja Graduate Scholarship in 2011 and 2013. He is now working at Syngenta in Glyndon, MN as the Product Selection Lead for Cereals.

Adams was advised by Zollinger and his graduate committee included Dr. Kirk Howatt, Dr. Grant Mehring and Dr. Steven Travers.
