My primary responsibilities for the past several years have been administrative as I have been Associate Dean in CFANS and now Senior Associate Dean for Extension. In this role, I oversee all of Extension's programs as well as their research efforts. I continue to be involved in long term manure application research studies. In addition, I provide input on outreach programs involving nutrient management issues.
