Subject Area: Soil Fertility/Soil Conservation

 Research Interests:

  • Field evaluation of conservation cropping systems/cover crops to improve soil health and sustainability
  • Assessment of short-term soil health indicators for their ability to predict long-term improvements in soil health and sustainability
  • Evaluation of macro- and micro-nutrient fertility recommendations for row-crop production systems in Alabama

My Extension program is focused on providing research-based information on soil fertility and soil conservation to Alabama row crop producers. My research group performs field evaluations of 1) conservation cropping practices/cover crops to improve soil health and sustainability of row crop production systems and 2) best management practices to increase fertilizer use efficiency in row-crop production systems.
