Razi Ibrahim presented his Plant Sciences M.S. thesis, Predicting Potato Yield Loss Due to Metribuzin Sensitivity in North Dakota, on June 11, 2018.

Ibrahim conducted experiments to evaluate and improve a potato yield loss prediction model for application in North Dakota. Results indicated that foliar injury was more correlated with yield reduction than relative plant height. In addition, models evaluating foliar injury at 21 days and at seven days after treatment most accurately predicted total yield loss and marketable yield loss, respectively.

Ibrahim, from Comilla, Bangladesh, earned his B.Sc. in Agriculture with honors at Bangladesh Agricultural University. He chose North Dakota State University for his Master’s degree because of its strong Plant Sciences program and renowned faculty.

Ibrahim received the Dr. John D. Donna Nalewaja Plant Sciences Graduate Scholarship for 2017-18.

He will pursue a Ph.D. in Integrated Plant Sciences at the University of Georgia, Athens.

Ibrahim was advised by Drs. Harlene Hatterman-Valenti and Asunta Thompson, and his graduate committee included Dr. Edward L. Deckard and Dr. Aaron Daigh.
