Shana Forster presented her Plant Sciences Ph.D. dissertation, Agronomic Practices that Impact Grain Quality Factors of Durum Wheat, on Monday, January 9, 2017. Her research focused on determining how planting date, seeding rate, and cultivar impacts agronomic performance and quality of end-use traits. She also researched the effect of Zn fertilizer application dates on cadmium levels.

A Mandan native, Forster chose NDSU for post-secondary studies, earning her B.S. in Crop and Weed Sciences and her M.S. in Plant Sciences, focusing on dry bean genetics. While working full time, she chose to remain with NDSU for her doctoral work, citing phenomenal opportunities within the Department of Plant Sciences.

During graduate school, Forster became a member of Gamma Sigma Delta and was a member of the Plant Sciences Graduate Student Association.

Forster plans to continue her work as Center Director at NDSU’s North Central Research Extension Center in Minot, ND.

Forster’s graduate committee members were Dr. Elias Elias, Dr. Frank Manthey, and Dr. David Franzen. She was advised by Dr. Joel Ransom.
