About the Author
H. Dan Scott is a university professor of soil physics inthe Department of Crops, Soil, and Environmental Sciences at theUniversity of Arkansas, Fayetteville. Dr. Scott’s researchinterests cover most aspects of soil-water crop relationships. Hisstudies include geographical information systems in agriculture andnatural resources, the effects of tillage and crop managementpractices on the spatial and temporal variability of soil physicalproperties, and the modeling of pesticide movement to surface andground waters.
