Dong, Xuejun Associate Professor


My program focuses on understanding soil-plant water relations and root/shoot processes for crop management in water-limited cropping systems. The leading research areas include (a) understanding plant biotic and abiotic stresses associated with water deficit and plant adaptation processes; (b) analyzing crop systems and developing new technologies to minimize risk, improve productivity and enhance soil quality and water conservation. I am currently serving as a guest-lecturer to a new graduate course, "Root Biology", which is cross-listed in MEPS and HORT at Texas A&M, College Station.
