Plant Sciences master’s student Nickolas Theisen was awarded the J. Fielding Reed Soil and Plant Sciences Scholarship by the American Society of Agronomy (ASA) at their annual meeting in Tampa, FL, October 22-25, 2017.

The J. Fielding Reed Scholarship was established in recognition of Dr. Reed’s life-long commitment to advancing the knowledge of agriculture through his work in soil science and natural resources, and his passion for educating students. The scholarship honors an outstanding student pursuing a career in soil or plant sciences.

Theisen, from Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin, completed his B.S. in Soil and Crop Science at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, where he was involved with the Students of Agronomy, Soils and Environmental Sciences (SASES), the student branch of the ASA. He began his master’s program at North Dakota State University in June 2017 and is advised by Harlene Hatterman-Valenti, plant sciences professor and high value crops project leader. Theisen’s research focuses on evaluating hops production techniques and cultivars that work well in North Dakota.
