Overview

Healty, productive soils are the foundation of a secure food system. In Hawaii, where soils vary dramatically across the landscape, developing management strategies that maintain soil health and productivity is challenging. My program focuses on assisting farmers and land managers in Hawaii implement soil management practices that maintain good crop production, and more importantly, enhance soil quality and protect the soil for future generations. Our work integrates research and extension activities with a strong commitment to farmers throughout Hawaii. In addition, I teach TPSS 304 Fundamentals of Soil Science every Fall semester and mentor a number of students in my lab.
