Professor Emeritus and Extension Specialist, Soil Physics
Departmental Research Areas:
- Management of Nutrients, Pesticides, and Wastes
- Soil Landscape Analysis
Extension and research programs focus on the water quality impacts of pesticide use; development and implementation of decision support systems to minimize adverse impacts on water quality; and developing extension materials (publications, software, websites) for use by county extension agents and the general public.
