My research and extension program goals focus on 1) developing and implementing sustainable strategies that optimize water management for citrus production, conservation of water, and water quality; 2) conducting research to improve water use efficiency in citrus production systems, minimizing water quality degradation, and maximizing productivity; 3) developing local and regional water use models taking into consideration citrus planting systems, tree water requirements, irrigation scenarios, and water use for cold protection; 4) applying precision agricultural technologies for local and regional water management; and 5) developing best water and nutrient management practices for water conservation and quality maintenance for surface and ground water sources. My research and extension interests include soil and water management and conservation; nutrient management through conventional and precision agricultural practices; irrigation and drainage management; micro-irrigation; water and nutrient best management practices; crop production; and soil and crop modeling.
