  • Plants Response to Abiotic Stressors
  • Cropping Systems and Water Conservation
  • The Impact of Climate Change and Climate Variability on Crops Growth and Yield


  • PLNT 3000-40 / Irrigated Agriculture
  • PLNT 5790-40 / Topics: Irrigated Agriculture


  • Impact of climate variability on winter wheat overwintering and frost kill in two major production regions: The USA West Mountain region and Northern Europe.
  • The effects of water stress on growth and yield of crops.
  • Towards the recommendation of scientifically-based Irrigation strategies in Wyoming: A case study for forage alfalfa crop production.
  • Vegetable crop production and variety selection inside and outside High Tunnels: research, demonstration, education, and training.
