Master of Science – Crop Science
Thesis / Dissertation: Optimizing Soybean Yield and Quality through Planting Date and Maturity Group Selection in North Carolina
Advisor / Co-Advisors:
Guy Collins and Josh Heitman
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at NC State and appreciate the faculty, staff, and classmates that have helped me reach this milestone in my life.
We conducted soybean research across the state in an effort to increase soybean yields while maintaining seed quality. It was concluded that planting earlier can result in higher yields; however, there will be greater concerns with seed quality.
Publications and Presentations:
- Maximizing Soybean Yield by Understanding Planting Date, Maturity Group, and Seeding Rate Interactions in North Carolina
- Planting Date and Maturity Group Impacts on Soybean Seed Quality in North Carolina
I plan to use my degree to:
I will be working with the NC Department of Ag and Consumer Services as a Regional Agronomist.
