My research focuses on protecting water resources while maintaining agricultural production goals in semi-arid cropping systems. Research topics include evaluating tillage and water management strategies and crop rotation options in various cropping systems to improve nutrient and water use efficiencies, carbon and nutrient cycling, crop yields, and subsequent soil water storage. Working directly with producers and private and/or government agencies is crucial to identifying applied research goals and transferring results to engaged stakeholders.
