Professor Mohamed F. R. Khan is the Extension Sugarbeet Specialist for North Dakota State University and the University of Minnesota. He is responsible for developing, conducting and evaluating educational programs that will improve sugarbeet production practices in North Dakota and Minnesota. Dr. Khan research is aimed at improving management of diseases such as Cercospora leaf spot, Rhizoctonia crown and root rot, Sclerotinia, Alternaria, Rhizomania and Fusarium yellows, and agronomic practices such as optimum plant populations, nitrogen management, tillage systems and crop sequences. He does collaborative research on identification of R. solani and sugarbeet physiology with scientists at USDA/ARS facilities in Fargo, ND and Beltsville, MD. He works collaboratively with researchers worldwide on managing C. beticola on sugarbeet.
Dr. Khan is the secretary of the Sugarbeet Research and Education Board of Minnesota and North Dakota (SBREB). The SBREB is responsible for funding and promoting research and educational programs in sugarbeet production. Dr. Khan is also the Chairman of the International Sugarbeet Institute, which organizes an annual two-day trade show. About 2000 growers and allied industry personnel participate in the exposition that involves over 100 exhibitors who showcase more than $10 million worth of machinery and equipment involved in sugarbeet production.
Dr. Khan received his BS from the University of Guyana; MS from the University of Bath, UK; and his Ph.D. from Clemson University, USA. He is also experienced in managing tropical crops including coconut, oil palm and sugar cane.
