North Dakota State University Department of Plant Sciences graduate student Binu Rana was one of three winners in a poster competition that was part of the virtual 2020 North Dakota Academy of Science annual meeting on December 4, 2020. 

Her poster presentation, “Season Extension Using Supplemental Soil Heat in a North Dakota High Tunnel for Warm Season Vegetable Production,” highlighted how high tunnels with supplemental heat can be beneficial by enhancing crop growth, extending the season, and assisting growers in maximizing profits with intensive production practices, especially for short growing season areas like North Dakota. 

Rana is working toward her Master’s degree in Horticulture and is advised by Dr. Harlene Hatterman-Valenti.

The purpose of the North Dakota Academy of Science is to promote and conduct scientific research and disseminate scientific knowledge. Membership is open to those who share this purpose and are active or interested in a field of scientific research. Visit their website at http://www.ndacadsci.org/
