Matthew Osterholt

Botany and Plant Pathology 

  • Graduate Research Assistant - Bryan Young lab

 General Information

Matthew Osterholt is a Ph.D. student under the supervision of Dr. Bryan Young investigating how dicamba vapors interact with sensitive crop species in addition to exactly how environmental factors affect dicamba volatilization. Research into the current dicamba formulations along with the environments in which these herbicides are applied will provide a more comprehensive understanding of when dicamba should be applied in order to mitigate the risk of off-target movement and its effect on sensitive crops. The goal of Matthew’s research is to better understand the linkage between the chemical properties of auxin herbicides and their effects on sensitive crops.

Expected graduation: December 2021.
