Area of Expertise: Corn Production Systems

Dr. Dan Quinn is the Extension Corn Specialist at Purdue University. Dr. Quinn earned his B.S. and M.S. in Crop and Soil Science at Michigan State University. While in Michigan, Dr. Quinn worked in corn, soybean, wheat, sugarbeet, and potato soil fertility, agronomic management, and extension. Following the completion of his M.S., he earned his Ph.D. at the University of Kentucky in Plant and Soil Science and worked on soil fertility and agronomic management of corn following a rye cover crop. His interdisciplinary research and extension program at Purdue works to improve the overall production, profitability, and environmental performance of Midwest corn systems. Key areas of interest include: yield physiology, agronomic management intensities, precision technologies, nutrient management, and cover crop use in corn production systems using large-scale field research trials.
