My general research objectives and interests are in the areas of:
  1. impacts of conservation practices on soil sustainability and water quality
  2. discovery of and effectiveness of best management practices for nutrients, sediments, and pesticides as related to water quality impacts
  3. developing of best management practices using GIS, models, and other methods
  4. developing methods and procedures to evaluate the impact of management practices on water quality at the watershed level

All research projects that I am involved with attempt to answer questions that I need to answer in support of my extension programs. My projects typically are very applied and can be rapidly used by stakeholders.
