Assistant Professor, Soil and Crop Sciences Section
School of Integrative Plant Science
Louis Longchamps is an Assistant Professor of Digital Agriculture in the SIPS Soil & Crops Section.
Longchamps previously worked for Agri-Food Canada where his research focused on development of a yield sensor for baby greens, optimization of nitrogen management using remote sensing, and reduction in nitrous oxide emissions using variable rate nitrogen management in switchgrass.
He earned his PhD at Laval University where his thesis research focused on “Spatial structure of weed populations in corn fields and measure of the potential for site-specific weed management”, followed by postdoctoral work in the Department of Soil and Crop Sciences, Colorado State University.
Site-specific weed management and variable rate nitrogen management
Academic focus: I research how precision agriculture, on-farm experimentation, data science, and soil, crop and environment sensing can improve the way we manage our crops — to the benefit of farmers and the environment. Research summary: I did...
