BSE Colloquium Series – Dr. Tom Franti

Research and Extension: Parallel and In Series

Date: Time: 12:00 pm
Contact: Rebecca Wachs, (402) 472-2262,
Tom Franti is an associate professor and Surface Water Management Specialist with the UNL Department of Biological Systems Engineering. Since 1993 he has conducted research and extension education programs related to protecting surface water quality.

Dr. Franti will discuss how his current and past research has focused on water quality issues that ran parallel with his Extension efforts. Evaluating and promoting best management practices, and aiming at adoption by producers, is the goal of the Land Grant Ideal when applied to managing surface water quality. Such projects as the Nebraska Buffer Strip Program and the NRCS Conservation Security Program were drivers for Extension efforts. Discussion of a series of research projects will be presented.
