Brian J. Wienhold

Location Coordinator and Research Leader

Degrees:

  • B.A. Minnesota State University - Moorhead, 1982
  • M.S. North Dakota State University, 1985
  • Ph.D. University of Arizona, 1989

Research Interests:

Soil-plant interactions and soil management in spatially variable landscapes.


 

Major Project Activities:
I am currently working on identifying the response of soil physical, chemical, and biological properties to soil management practices such as irrigation, tillage, crop rotation, and fertilization within spatially variable fields. I am collaborating with other ARS and NRCS scientists to develop assessment tools and decision aids for improved soil management. I am also quantifying the role of crop residue as a nutrient and energy source for soil biota. The objective of this work is to develop tools producers can use to evaluate the effect management practices have on the soil resource and to develop management practices that improve the sustainability of agricultural systems.
