General area of expertise:

Cropping systems, Agronomy, Crop Physiology.


Overview of current program:

Dr. Singh’s research, extension, and teaching program focuses on current and emerging issues in cropping systems of Michigan with an overall goal to improve the profitability and sustainability of these systems. Current research is focused on management practices such as planting density, precision planting, tillage systems, and plant-disease interactions in corn, soybean, and wheat based cropping systems. Additionally, Dr. Singh provides leadership role in the Michigan corn hybrid testing program.
