Dr. Peter J. Stoffella
Dr. Peter J. Stoffella is an active member of many committees and organizations. Among his horticultural research interests, he established a research program on developing optimum compost utilization practices in commercial horticultural cropping systems.
Specifically, Dr. Stoffella has interests in composts of biological weed controls, composts as peat substitutes for media used in transplant production systems, and composts as partial inorganic nutrient substitutes in field grown vegetable crop production systems. Recently, he developed a cooperative research program on utilization of compost in a vegetable cropping system as a mechanism of reducing nutrient leaching into ground water.
Dr. Stoffella retired in June, 2016.
