Enhancing elemental analysis capabilities for organic substances at UW–Platteville

PI: Chris Baxter


Baxter is a Professor of Soil and Crop Science at UW–Platteville, Coordinates the Reclamation, Environment, and Conservation (REC) Program, and also serves as a statewide Nutrient Management Specialist for UW–Extension. He teaches courses including soil science, soil fertility, nutrient management and soil physics, and advises students in independent research projects.

Baxter’s project will use an updated carbon and nitrogen analyzer to better understand the benefits of carbon and nitrogen in soil, mature, compost, and biochar. This will expand UW–Platteville’s research and teaching efforts.
