Dr.Jeffrey Volenec

Professional Title:

Professor of Crop Physiology


Purdue University, Department of Agronomy

Current professional work/interests:

Dr. Volenec conducts research on physiological processes that influence productivity and input use efficiencies (water, nutrients, radiation, …) of crops, with an emphasis on perennial species used for forage and biomass. He also works extensively on the physiological and ecological basis for abiotic stress tolerance and how this is conditioned by agronomic management or crop genetics. Dr. Volenec hopes to be able to identify selection criteria for use by plant breeders and/or management strategies that improve crop productivity and resilience.
