About me

I am a specialist in Soil Fertility and Land Management  with lecturing and research experience in Australia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Fiji,  Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam. My interests are in plant nutrition on problem soils, soil management, management of sandy soils, diagnosis and correction of mineral disorders of plants, plant adaption to mineral stress, nutrient cycling, rehabilitation of degraded land, conservation agriculture, dryland salinity, catchment hydrology and management, sustainable land use, and agricultural research for development. I have authored 16 book chapters, 153 refereed journal papers, 77 refereed articles in book and proceedings, 260 conference and other non-refereed papers, 73 reports, and edited eleven books. Much of my published work has concerned the mineral nutrition of crop and plants, and rehabilitation of degraded land. My first international project experience was as coordinator for a collaborative study with Thailand (1984-89) on the nutrition of food legumes on problem soils. Since then I have been the Project Leader of international cooperative research projects with China on boron and zinc nutrition of oilseed crops (1992-97), land suitability for upland crops in Cambodia (2004-2007); increasing rabi season legume crops  production in north-west Bangladesh (2006-2009); reducing water pollution from aquaculture fishponds in Vietnam (2007-2009), developing soil and crop management for sandy soils of coastal south central Vietnam (2009-2012), developing conservation agriculture for smallholder farms in Bangladesh (2012-2017), nutrient management for diverse cropping systems in Bangladesh (2018-2022)  and soil, nutrient and water management on sands in south-central coastal Vietnam (2014-2018).
