Oregon State University
David is a forage specialist at Oregon State University with research, teaching, extension, and international projects responsibilities.After completing degrees at the Universities of Delaware, Tennessee, and Kentucky, and extensive international travel in the spring of 1979, I began work at OSU and have been there for my entire professional career. Research has focused on biological nitrogen fixation of forage legumes and GIS-based ecological zoning to match species with climate and soil conditions. Extension activities have included national standards for forage quality evaluation and practical computer applications, including extensive work on the Forage Information System (http://forages.oregonstate.edu). Teaching responsibilities focus on forage and livestock systems and developing a national grasslands curriculum. International work has included USDA projects in Tunisia in the 1980s, a sabbatical leave in Avignon, France in 1999-2000, and over 25 years of working in China, with support from the USDA FAS MAP and EMP, Oregon Seed Council, and USTDA. Previous Fulbright activities included a Senior Scholar two-phase project in Banda Aceh, Indonesia to assist with tsunami recovery and develop improved capacity for applied research work at Syiah Kuala University. My current Distinguished Chair China Fulbright program will focus on developing a Chinese national curriculum for forage and livestock systems, modeling and mapping alfalfa varieties to appropriate areas in China, grassland/rangeland restoration research to match stocking rates to the biological capacity of the land, and assisting faculty and students in their publication efforts. My initial Fulbright program host will be Sichuan Agricultural University, followed by 5 months at Nanjing Agricultural University.
1.To make Irrigation technology more efficient and effective use of personnel and financial resources (through rewarding cooperation as well as independent accomplishments),
2. Apply current and emerging technologies to the benefit of society
3. Balance the needs for an economically productive forage/livestock agriculture with those for sustainable resource management,
4. Understand a broader concept of scholarship (involving not only discovery but also organization, synthesis, application, and outreach),
5. Evaluate and transform scientific research on conserved forages, pastures, and rangelands into useful and effective educational materials for broader societal benefit.
