My education and work has been in production agriculture with emphasis in soil science. I have worked with many agricultural systems in the Upper Midwest of the United States investigating soil fertility and soil management aspects. These systems include the crops of corn, soybean, wheat, barley, sugar beet, and potato. My research program is focused in developing nutrient management systems to improve sugar beet quality while preserving or improving environmental quality.
