Brent Myers studies precision agriculture in cereal cropping systems. A key focus of his program is understanding and managing effects on crop productivity and sustainability due to plant interactions with soils and landscapes. He uses a mix of approaches including yield maps, plant and soil sensors, and digital soil mapping, often employing ‘big-data’ analytics with geospatial modeling tools. Some specific topics he researches are seeding rate response in corn, soil functional changes due to corn cropping systems, and new methods to develop high resolution maps of soil and plant processes.
