Soil Science – Cropping Systems

Professor Emeritus/Former Department Head

C102 Plant Sciences



Research Interests:

Dr. Peterson’s career research emphasis has been the application of soil science principles to the solution of field related soil management problems. Recently these efforts have focused on developing dryland cropping systems that maximize water conservation and minimize soil erosion, and that are applicable to a wide range of climate-soil environments. System effects on water conservation, fertilizer N and P management, organic matter accumulation, and nutrient cycling have been emphasized over the most recent 20 years.
