Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Agriculture
  • Ecology
  • Agronomy

His scientific interests lie mostly in Agronomy, Yield, Agriculture, Crop yield and Food security. His research links Soil management with Agronomy. His Yield research also works with subjects such as

  • Cropping that connect with fields like Irrigation and Dry season,
  • Environmental quality that connect with fields like Agroecosystem, Developing country and Biogeochemistry.

His Agriculture study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Agroforestry. His Crop yield study deals with Agricultural engineering intersecting with Current yield and Cropping system. His work deals with themes such as Sustainability and Sustainability organizations, which intersect with Intensive farming.

His most cited work include:

  • Agricultural sustainability and intensive production practices (4720 citations)
  • Rice yields decline with higher night temperature from global warming (1538 citations)
  • Agroecosystems, Nitrogen-use Efficiency, and Nitrogen Management (1118 citations)

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

Kenneth G. Cassman mainly focuses on Agronomy, Agriculture, Yield, Agroforestry and Yield gap. Kenneth G. Cassman works mostly in the field of Agronomy, limiting it down to concerns involving Soil water and, occasionally, Mineralogy. His Agriculture study combines topics in areas such as Natural resource economics, Sustainability and Natural resource management.

Kenneth G. Cassman combines subjects such as Cropping, Agricultural engineering and Agricultural economics with his study of Yield. His Crop research incorporates themes from Transplanting and Yield. The Crop yield study combines topics in areas such as Climate change and Sowing.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Agronomy (45.74%)
  • Agriculture (19.77%)
  • Yield (17.44%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Yield gap (15.89%)
  • Agronomy (45.74%)
  • Agriculture (19.77%)

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

Kenneth G. Cassman mostly deals with Yield gap, Agronomy, Agriculture, Yield and Crop yield. Kenneth G. Cassman has researched Yield gap in several fields, including Crop simulation model, Agricultural engineering, Agricultural productivity and Food security. His work in the fields of Crop, Sowing and Fertilizer overlaps with other areas such as Yield.

His studies deal with areas such as Agroforestry, Sustainability, Agricultural economics and Environmental planning as well as Agriculture. His Yield research incorporates themes from Statistics, Self-sufficiency and Irrigation. His studies in Crop yield integrate themes in fields like Climate change, Soil water and Cropping system.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Agricultural expansion and its impacts on tropical nature (673 citations)
  • Limited potential of no-till agriculture for climate change mitigation (389 citations)
  • Can sub-Saharan Africa feed itself? (280 citations)
