About the Program


Research Interests

  • Dr. Khosla is involved with quantifying and managing spatial variability of soils by precise crop input management in an environmentally sensible manner.
  • Currently, Dr. Khosla is evaluating different techniques of delineating and managing “production level management zones”.
  • In addition, he is evaluating remote sensing techniques to quantify crop stress conditions for nitrogen in irrigated corn, and detecting weeds in dryland no-till fields.

Teaching Responsibilities

  • Dr. Khosla teaches three courses, two undergraduate courses and one graduate level course at CSU. In addition, Dr. Khosla is the College of Agricultural Science 's Coordinator of a new degree concentration program called “Applied Information Technology in Agriculture".

Extension & Outreach

  • Dr. Khosla has an extensive outreach program on Precision Agriculture. He conducts numerous field days and hands-on extension workshops around the state of Colorado and elsewhere.
  • He practices on-farm demonstration research and extension trials and uses state-of-the-art technologies and its applications in crop production systems.
