WHAT AREA DO YOU TEACH?

Soil science and agronomy

EDUCATION/DEGREE(S)

Ph.D., 1982, Mississippi State University, Soil Chemistry Major, Chemistry Minor.
M.S., 1980, Mississippi State University, Soils Major
B.S., 1976, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Soils Major
B.S., 1973, University of Wisconsin-Platteville, Chemistry and Mathematics Majors

YOUR PHILOSOPHY OF TEACHING:

I believe that agronomy is a blend of science, business and experiences related to the culture of crops and the soils that supports them. A good practicing agronomist-soil scientist must integrate these principles into a mode of thinking to become a good diagnostician and producer of food and fiber.
