My areas of expertise include vegetable production with emphasis on water and nutrient management, water conservation in irrigation systems, fertilization of vegetable crops, crop variety trials and the use of crop models to account the effects of weather variability on vegetable production.

My research interests are in the development of best management practices for irrigation and fertilizer application on vegetable crops, evaluation of genetic material more adaptable to particular growing and environmental conditions, and to explore alternative crops to Georgia vegetable production scenario. My extension and teaching interests are related to irrigation management, plant fertility, vegetable crops production, statistics and crop modeling.
