Md. Nasir Hossain Sani

Md Nasir Hossain Sani
Doctoral student in the Horticulture Production Physiology group at the Department of Biosystems and Technology


A dedicated young researcher in the field of agriculture, horticulture, and agroforestry, with a strong educational background and a passion for sustainable agriculture and environment. Possesses skills and expertise in plant nutrition and crop physiology with particular regard to the biostimulants, beneficial microbes, organic amendments and climate change.


My doctoral research is focused on the profiling and transforming digestates into valuable products for sustainable agriculture. The project investigates how feed sources, biogas operations and other factors alter the resultant digestates in terms of their composition and effects on crop growth and quality with the plausible strategic development of an integrated digestate valorization approach for manufacturing digestate-derived bio-fertilizer and other bio-based products from a sustainability and circular bioeconomy context.


Erasmus Mundus Joint Master’s Degree (EMJMD) in Sustainable Tropical Forestry from the University of Copenhagen (2019-2020), Denmark and Bangor University (2020-2021), UK.

Master of Science in Horticulture (2018), Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, Bangladesh

Bachelor of Science in Agriculture (2015), Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, Bangladesh


Doctoral researcher, Sveriges Lantbruksuniversitet (SLU), Alnarp, Sweden (April 2023-present)
