Eric Adee -- Agronomist-In-Charge
Agricultural research requires several things to be successful. Start with a workable theory or proposition, the means to test it, and funding--those things are generally organized by the researcher. Then, there are other things like land, space, equipment, manpower, maintenance and more. Our guest today is responsible for arranging and supervising those and many other important items. Eric Adee is the agronomist-in-charge of Kansas State University's East Central Kansas and Kansas River Valley experiment fields. He'll lead us through some of the details involved in agricultural research, and what makes the university's approach to research so practical.
