Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Agronomy

Ken E. Giller mainly focuses on Agronomy, Agroforestry, Soil fertility, Agriculture and Soil management. Ken E. Giller has researched Agronomy in several fields, including Soil organic matter, Soil water, Nitrogen fixation and Nutrient. Ken E. Giller combines subjects such as Soil quality and Crop production with his study of Agroforestry.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Fertilizer, Crotalaria, Crop, Nutrient management and Crop yield. His studies deal with areas such as Productivity and Natural resource economics as well as Agriculture. His study in Soil management is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Agroecosystem, Resource, Crop residue and Green manure.

His most cited work include:

  • Toxicity of heavy metals to microorganisms and microbial processes in agricultural soils: a review (1523 citations)
  • Conservation agriculture and smallholder farming in Africa: The heretics' view (942 citations)
  • Conservation agriculture and smallholder farming in Africa: The heretics' view (942 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of study are Agronomy, Agroforestry, Agriculture, Soil fertility and Nitrogen fixation. The various areas that Ken E. Giller examines in his Agronomy study include Soil water and Nutrient. His Agroforestry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Resource, Land use, Cropping, Sustainability and Conservation agriculture.

His Agriculture research includes themes of Productivity, Agricultural economics and Agricultural science. The Soil fertility study combines topics in areas such as Nutrient management, Soil management, Soil organic matter and Manure. His Nitrogen fixation research incorporates themes from Symbiosis and Phaseolus, Botany.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Agronomy (38.48%)
  • Agroforestry (30.61%)
  • Agriculture (28.86%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Agriculture (28.86%)
  • Agroforestry (30.61%)
  • Agronomy (38.48%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Ken E. Giller mainly focuses on Agriculture, Agroforestry, Agronomy, Nitrogen fixation and Crop. His Agriculture study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Productivity, Agricultural economics and Agricultural science. The concepts of his Agroforestry study are interwoven with issues in Cropping and Intercropping.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Nutrient and Soil fertility in addition to Agronomy. His Nutrient research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Dry matter and Yield. His Soil fertility study often links to related topics such as Manure.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Genetically Engineered Crops: Experiences and Prospects (198 citations)
  • Drivers of household food availability in sub-Saharan Africa based on big data from small farms (147 citations)
  • Yield gaps in oil palm: A quantitative review of contributing factors (120 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Agronomy

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Agronomy, Agriculture, Crop yield, Crop and Agroforestry. Ken E. Giller interconnects Nitrogen fixation, Nutrient and Soil fertility in the investigation of issues within Agronomy. His Agriculture study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Climate change and Agricultural economics.

His work deals with themes such as Soil classification, Weed control, Leaching and Cultivar, which intersect with Crop yield. As a member of one scientific family, Ken E. Giller mostly works in the field of Crop, focusing on Soil type and, on occasion, Sorghum. His Agroforestry research integrates issues from Productivity, Cash crop and Agricultural science.
