Biography
Tom is a soil scientist specializing in nitrogen studies. Recent work has been with networks of farmers in the Corn Belt who use yield monitors to generate large data sets of results from replicated strip trials. The results are used to estimate the probability of increased efficiency for crop production practices. Larger and more comprehensive data sets are needed to create better guidelines for crop production practices that when combined with local knowledge at the field level will maximize profit and minimize pollution.
