Brief description of current research:

Roger W. Elmore is an Extension Corn Specialist and Professor of Agronomy at Iowa State University. He concentrates on development of practical management information for corn growers. He strives to do his best to maintain or increase profitability of farming by seeking and demonstrating environmentally sound production practices. The ecosystem is too fragile to treat it with disrespect. Therefore, our livelihood and future depends on good environmental stewardship.
