On Friday, June 17, 2016, Morgan Hanson presented her M.S. thesis, Triallate Efficacy to Suspected Herbicide Resistant Wild Oat (Avena fatua L.) in Spring Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). Her research confirmed that integrating triallate back into North Dakota cropping systems is a viable option for controlling wild oat in cereal production.

Hanson received her undergraduate degree from the Department of Plant Sciences, majoring in Crop and Weed Sciences, and chose to continue her education at NDSU because it is one of the top research universities in the nation.

Hanson completed three internships while working towards her B.S. degree, including Crop Consulting with JS Ag in Devils Lake, ND (2011) and Business Management with WinField Solutions in Bismarck, ND (2012 and 2013). She also was awarded several scholarships as an undergraduate and the Gustav Geiszler Scholarship (2105) as a graduate student.

Hanson’s graduate committee members were Dr. Richard Zollinger, Dr. James Hammond, and Dr. David Franzen. She was advised by Dr. Kirk Howatt.
