About Dr. Bryant

Dr. Bryant obtained his Ph.D. from Mississippi State University where he trained as a systems agronomist and studied the effects of conservation tillage systems with and without cover crops on soybean grain yield, furrow irrigation application efficiency, and nutrient transport from irrigation and rainfall events.

Dr. Bryant has a 80% Extension and 20% Research appointment in the Department of Crop and Soil Sciences – Tifton campus.  His research focus is conducting applied agronomic research that increases yields and profitability of Georgia corn, soybean, and small grains growers.  Research interests include determining optimum plant populations based on in-row and between-row interactions, maximizing solar radiation interception through alteration of plant canopy geometry, and determining alternative fertilizer placement strategies among many other things.  His extension program focuses on training and assisting county agents with in-field problem diagnostics along with educating local growers through county level meetings.
