Have 15+ years of experience with crop water demand, irrigation scheduling, soil moisture sensing technologies, soil-water-plant-atmosphere relations, and precision irrigation. I help producers within Platte, Boone, and Nance Counties to find the best management practices that fit their operations, increase their profitability, and reduce environmental impact. Use of soil moisture sensor-based irrigation schedule to promote irrigation best management practices. Use efficient management practices to mitigate the nitrate issues in Nebraska groundwater.
