Personnel supporting this research include Robert Shenk, Allison Kenyon, Aileen Hendratna, Tom Pflaum, Jim Gartung, Stella Zambrzuski, Matt Gonzales and Patricia Mungur in the WMRU
, and Carl Hawk with his field crew in USDA-ARS, Parlier.
Realizing that research from a given field will not apply to all situations, the WMRU
is working closely with the USDA-ARS Agricultural Systems Research Unit in Fort Collins to collect field measurements that will validate and improve crop models, such as the Root Zone Water Quality Model, so that these models can predict crop yields under water stress for a wide range of conditions.
Trout's ARS colleagues in this study include agricultural engineer Walter Bausch and plant physiologists Dale Shaner and Lori Wiles, all at WMRU
