About Dr. Brown

I am the Director of Nutrient Management and Environmental Stewardship for GROWMARK, Inc. My mission is to foster nutrient environmental stewardship on farms by working with farmers through education and research programs. In maximizing nutrient utilization, farmers can optimize harvest yield and minimize environmental impact.

I also have served as an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois for the past 15 years, instructing courses such as Soil Fertility in Cropping Systems and Nutrient Management and Environmental Stewardship in the Off-Campus Masters Program.
