Seminar: Dr. Curtis Dell
Carbon and nitrogen management in dairy forage andpasture systems, plus an introduction to the USDAClimate Hubs
Dr. Dell has been a Research Soil Scientist with the USDA-Agricultural ResearchService at University Park, PA, since 2001. He is also a Co-Leader with the USDANortheast Climate Hub. Currently, he is the Acting Director of the USDA SouthernPlains Climate Hub in El Reno, OK. His research in PA focuses on carbon andnitrogen cycling in manure-amended and pasture soils. He studies the impact ofnutrient management on water and air quality with an emphasis on measurementof nitrogen gas emissions (nitrous oxide and ammonia). He received a PhD in soilmicrobial ecology from Kansas State University in 1998 (with Dr. Chuck Rice),where his research addressed impacts of fire on soil N cycling in Konza Prairie soils. He received his M.S. in soil microbiology from Purdue University in 1991, and BSin agronomy from Purdue University in 1985. View Abstract (PDF).
