Soil Science (Precision Agriculture)
C13 Plant Science Building
Dr. Khosla is involved with quantifying and managing spatial variability of soils by precise crop input management in an environmentally sensible manner. Currently, Dr. Khosla is evaluating different techniques of delineating and managing “production level management zones”. In addition, he is evaluating remote sensing techniques to quantify crop stress conditions for nitrogen in irrigated corn, and detecting weeds in dryland no-till fields.
Extension & Outreach
Dr. Khosla has an extensive outreach program on Precision Agriculture. He conducts numerous field days and hands-on extension workshops around the state of Colorado and elsewhere. He practices on-farm demonstration research and extension trials and uses state-of-the-art technologies and its applications in crop production systems.
Dr. Khosla teaches three courses, two undergraduate courses and one graduate level course at CSU. In addition, Dr. Khosla is the College of Agricultural Science’s Coordinator of a new degree concentration program called “Applied Information Technology in Agriculture”.
