Nelson Geary presented a seminar on his M.S. thesis, Response of ‘Russet Burbank’ Seed Tubers Containing Glyphosate and Dicamba Residue, on Monday, December 11, 2017 at North Dakota State University. His research focused on the effects that low doses of dicamba and glyphosate have on potato production, in particular when potato tuber seeds are planted containing residue of these herbicides from the previous year.

Geary, from Burley, Idaho, received his Bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah. He chose to continue his education at NDSU because it is agriculture based, it has “some of the smartest and nicest people I have met,” and for the opportunity to live in Fargo.

“Overall, I had a wonderful experience [in the Department of Plant Sciences],” said Geary. “The professors and students will go out of their way to help in any way possible. The classes offered encourage learning and prepare individuals for careers in agriculture.”

During his time at NDSU, Geary received the Gustav N. Geiszler Memorial Scholarship and was a member of the NDSU Plant Sciences Graduate Student Association. In 2015, he interned with Davey Tree, a national tree care company. He has taken an agronomist position at Rocky Mountain Agronomics in southern Idaho.

Geary was advised by Dr. Andrew Robinson. His graduate committee consisted of Dr. Harlene Hatterman-Valenti, Dr. Gary Secor, and Dr. Richard Zollinger.
