Selected Research Projects and Activities:

Extensive field scale study on impacts of improved irrigation management practices i.e. multiple inlet irrigation in rice (MIRI), alternate wetting & drying practice (AWD), and furrow irrigation practices on water quality of runoff, greenhouse gas emissions and grain yield in rice.

Feedbacks of furrow tillage and N fertilizer management on water quality runoff and total N losses in irrigated row crop production.

Assessing water quality in irrigated cropping systems of the Midsouth.

Plot field scale experiments on water use and greenhouse gas emissions of various Southern US rice varieties under alternate wetting & drying practice.

Studies on varietal CH4 and N2O emissions of selected Southern rice cultivars and their progenies for adaption and mitigation on changing environments.

Towards a better understanding of agronomic response of rice varieties under high nighttime air temperature. This study is part of the Research Infrastructure Improvement (RII) Track-2 Focused EPSCoR Collaborations (RII Track-2 FEC) collaborative research project on “Comparative genomics and phenomics approach to discover genes underlying heat stress resilience in cereals” (National Science Foundation Award # 1736192).

Field to Market Rice Methane Science Technical Working group  Field to Market (FTM): The Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture

The Rice Methane Science group is a collaborative group of professors and scientists working with FTM members towards fine tuning of the Rice Fieldprint calculator. One of the components of the calculator estimates greenhouse gas emission from rice systems based on cultural practices, water management and varietal selection. Field to Market is developing a tool that will allow all rice stakeholders to evaluate the carbon footprint of rice production at a field scale.
