The Nutrient Management and Environmental Quality Research Group in the Department of Plant and Soil Sciences (PLSC) of the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) is led by Dr. Amy Shober. The group’s mission is to develop and evaluate soil and nutrient management practices for agronomic and vegetable cropping systems to reduce non-point nutrient pollution while improving profitability. Our research integrates knowledge of soil science with that of other disciplines, such as agronomy, geohydrology, engineering, economics, and environmental policy.
