SHELBY C. MCCLELLAND

Ph.D. Candidate

My research focuses on soil carbon and greenhouse gas emissions in alternative agricultural production systems. I am particularly interested in three key residue management practices: cover crops, manure and organic amendments, and the plant-soil impacts of management intensive grazing. Results of this work will be integrated into the COMET-Farm and Cool Farm Tool to improve GHG decision-support for farmers.
