Specialty: Plant Nutrition and Waste Management

Retired 2/03/09. Current research is directed toward 1)applying knowledge of nitrogen and phosphorus nutrition of soybean to solve waste management problems associated with intensive swine production systems, 2)quantifying the impact of intensive swine and poultry production systems and associated waste management practices on the quality of ground and surface water with emphasis on nitrate movement from fields receiving animal waste to surface waters through shallow groundwater, and 3)elucidation of physiological and nutritional factors that regulate P composition of in soybean seed.
