Jehad Abbadi

Prof. Dr. Abbadi is a professor in plant nutrition since 2019, holding a Ph. D. in agriculture. He got his first and second degrees from Al-Quds University, Jerusalem-Palestine (B.Sc. in Biology and medical technology in 1995 and M.Sc. in Applied industrial technology in 2002) and the Ph.D. degree in agricultural science in 2007 from Christian-Albrecht’s University, Kiel, Germany. He is currently a staff teaching member in the Department of Biology, College of Science and Technology at Al-Quds University since 2008. He teaches, General biology, plant physiology, plant biochemistry, ecology, plant production, and plant nutrition.

His Research interests are in different related agricultural fields in which forty papers are already published. His main research interest is characterizing nutrient use efficiency of plants emphasizing the mechanisms of nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium uptake and utilization efficiency parameters including plant and soil parameters. Other research interests are: anti-oxidant contents and their activities of medicinal plants and fruits, factors affecting olive oil quality, application of plant growth promoting bacteria, wastewater treatment and reuse in agriculture, effect of salinity on fruit quality and. He is interested now in improving water use efficiency of plants by optimizing K nutrition. He published 40 publications in international journals.
