A multipurpose measurement system to assess the environmental sustainability and productivity of dairy farms

PI: Susanne Wiesner


Wiesner is an assistant professor of environmental science at UW–River Falls. Her research interests include agricultural atmospheric science and climate resiliency, land-atmosphere interactions, remote sensing, and ecosystem management. Wiesner’s position is funded by the Dairy Innovation Hub.

Wiesner’s project will utilize a LI-6800 Portable Photosynthesis System to understanding the environmental sustainability of diverse dairy agroecosystems. Furthermore, data collected using this instrument can be used to inform other DIH priority areas by linking forage and landscape traits to milk production, animal health and human nutrition. The LI-6800 Portable Photosynthesis System will be a shared resource between UW–Madison and UW–River Falls.
