Dr. Craig D. Stanley
Associate Center Director and Professor, Soil and Water Science
Dr. Craig Stanley’s research and extension activities focus on developing improved water and nutrient management practices to encourage water conservation and minimize impacts on ground and surface water quality for horticultural crop production.
This program is designed to provide solutions for horticultural producers by increasing options for maximizing productivity, while protecting valuable water resources. In addition, Dr. Stanley has worked closely with state agencies, such as the Southwest Florida Water Management District, the Florida Department of Agricultural and Consumer Services, and the Florida Department for Environmental Protection, to provide science-based information that can be used for regulatory purposes.
