My research and outreach interests focus on diversifying cropping systems to manage soil fertility and plant nutrients in order to maintain soil and water quality. As the NE-SARE Coordinator, I will work closely with state and regional agricultural professionals to enhance outreach efforts that help farmers reduce economic and environmental risks. With a primary focus on agronomic crops and grazing systems, my research and extension activities will make science-based information about nutrient management and water quality relationships, soil health, and value-added crop enterprises accessible. I am also enthusiastic about improving knowledge about food production and human nutrition in both rural and urban communities.
