Soil Fertility and Water Management
Southwest Florida Research and Education Center
Departmental Research Areas:
Modeling of soil nitrogen and phosphorus bioavailability with focus on environmental cycling and crop uptake. Improved nutrient and water use efficiencies through the development of expert systems for citrus, vegetable, and sand-land sugarcane production. Establish N and P best management practices that provide maximum environmental protection while maintaining highest possible economical yields.
Provide growers of Florida with science-based information on improved soil fertility and water management methods. Implementation of best management practices that sustain yields while protecting water quality.
