Enhancing crop health assessment through acquisition of a porometer/fluorometer

PI: Veronica Justen


Justen is a professor of crop science at UW–River Falls. Her interests include plant breeding, field crop production, and enhancing diversified crop rotations with cover crops and hardy winter small grains.

Justen’s project will use a fluorometer/porometer to expand research capacity for novel research on dairy cropping systems and nutrient management at UW–River Falls. A fluorometer/porometer is an instrument that can measure plant health and stress response in field or controlled environment settings, including manure management, cover crop and forage trials.
