Professional Activities:
Activities are currently 100% administrative or administrative related activities and do not have an on going research program. Generally average between 15 to 25 presentations per year but most of these are general overviews of the department or specific programs within the department and/or college. I organize one major 3 day workshop for the certified crop advisors each year and help other groups such as the Alabama Crop Management Association and Alabama Feed and Grain Association organize meetings. Occasionally, I give extension presentations in fertilizer management.
