Dr. Marshall Frasier's research interests focus on the interface between agricultural production and the natural resource base upon which it relies. Historically, he has done significant work in water allocation and water quality as they relate to agricultural production. More recently, he is expanding his emphasis in livestock and grazing management as consistent with his long-held relationship with Integrated Resource Management. Finally, he is developing an emerging interest in formal evaluation and development of curricular and extracurricular programs for undergraduate students.
