On Thursday, June 1, 2017, Tracy Hillenbrand presented her M.S. thesis, Nitrogen Fertilizer Timing, Rate, and Source Effects on Corn and Wheat Production in the Red River Valley. Four corn and hard red spring wheat experiments were the basis of Hillenbrand’s research with the goal of determining if yield and protein concentration could be enhanced through nitrogen application timings, rates and sources when compared to urea applied pre-plant. Quantifying the dissolution rate of controlled release fertilizer (CRF) was another project objective.  

Hillenbrand chose NDSU for its reputation as a well-respected school in the agriculture industry, especially in the Red River Valley. During her time at NDSU, she held two three-month internships at DuPont Pioneer. Since completing her course work, she has accepted a position as a research associate with Monsanto.

Hillenbrand’s graduate committee members were Dr. Hans Kandel, Dr. Dave Franzen, and Dr. R.J. Goos. Her adviser was Dr. Joel Ransom.
