Dr. Drew Scott serves as a Research Agronomist at the USDA-ARS Northern Great Plains Research Laboratory (NGPRL). Drew is interested in several aspects of agroecology including crop rotation diversity, cover crops, inclusion of perennials in annual cropping systems, weed communities, and nutrient cycling in agro-ecosystems. He received his Ph.D. in Plant Biology (Ecology) from Southern Illinois University in 2019 evaluating how resource levels and resource heterogeneity influence plant and microbial communities during prairie restoration from croplands. Drew’s overall research goal is to identify novel ways to increase agricultural yields and sustainability. Drew is a member of American Society of Agronomy, Ecological Society of America, Soil Science Society of America, and Soil Ecology Society.
