I recently graduated as an MS student this Spring. Currently, I'm continuing my education as a PhD student at the HCS Department.
My MS research topic is about soybean planting date and seeding rate interactions. The objectives are to 1) measure the effects of soybean seeding rate and planting date on grain yield, 2) identify the agronomic and economic optimum soybean seeding rate, and 3) measure the effect of soybean planting date and seeding rate on posterior harvested seed mass, seed germination, and seedling vigor.
I did an internship in the US for one year in 2018 through The Ohio Program (TOP), and I had the opportunity to visit OSU during the orientation day before starting my internship. That day opened my eyes to the outstanding research facilities and resources that OSU has, the esteemed faculty, and the structure of the graduate program that would make it a great place to help me to strengthen my agricultural knowledge base, science communication, produce essential information on soybean production and prepare myself for my professional life.
