Bachelor’s degree in Agronomy (2010) and MSc and PhD degree in Agricultural System Engineering (2016). Worked two years as an Assistant Professor at Mid-West State University in Brazil. Worked for three years as a Post-Doctorate at Auburn University. Have 15+ years of experience with crop water demand, irrigation scheduling, soil moisture sensing technologies, soil-water-plant-atmosphere relations, and precision irrigation.<br>I help producers within Platte, Boone, and Nance Counties to find the best management practices that fit their daily operations, increase their profitability, and reduce environmental impact. Use of soil moisture sensor-based irrigation schedule to promote irrigation best management practices. Use conservation practices to mitigate the nitrate issues in the groundwater. Develop management plans for more resilient farming. Use of high levels of interaction, such as co-learning and co-participatory extension approaches, to increase the adoption and retention of more efficient, profitable, and sustainable farming practices.

Knowing where grain losses occur is key to keeping them as low as possible — in this article, extension educators review how to calculate pre-harvest and at-harvest grain losses to determine the source.
Interested producers are encouraged to participate in this new UNL project, wherein researchers are interseeding cover crops into late-season corn to provide additional growth time before winter dormancy.
Factors such as the amount of water a soil can hold, the amount of water a crop will use until it reaches maturity, and the maximum allowable soil water depletion should be considered when deciding the last few irrigations of the season.
