AGRI-TREND Agrology is pleased welcome Dr. Grant Jackson as our newest Senior Agri-Coach
Dr. Grant D. Jackson, Professor Emeritus of Agronomy, recently retired from Montana State University, Western Triangle Ag. Research Center (WTARC), Conrad, MT.
Grant and his spouse of 46 years, Corline are the parents and grandparents of two children. He was reared on a winter wheat and livestock farm in the Oklahoma Panhandle and was honorably discharged from the US Army with the rank of Captain.
Dr. Jackson received his B.S. degree in Agronomy, Soils Option in 1968 from Oklahoma Panhandle State University, his M.S. degree in Soils in 1970 from Montana State University and PhD. in crop and Soil Science in 1974 from Montana State University. Previously, Dr. Jackson was Superintendent and Extension Agronomist, Powel Research and Extension Center, Powell, WY.
Some of his research accomplishments are as follows: no-till methods of planting small grains and row crops, developed P fertilizer guidelines for winter wheat, spring wheat, and spring barely using sodium bicarbonate extractable P soil test, developed regression equations to predict yield and protein levels of spring and winter wheat relative to N fertilizer additions and Nitrate-N soil test, determined the effect of N on malting barley yield, grain protein content, and kernel plumpness allowing the development of N management recommendations for producing dryland malting barley that would meet industry specifications for grain protein content and kernel plumpness, and developed camelina and canola guidelines to N, S, and P fertilizations.
