Research Interests and Experience

Tim Dalton’s research and teaching focuses on international agricultural development in less developed countries around the world. He studies how new varieties of sorghum, rice, and maize affect food productivity, production risk management, and nutrition, as well as the impact of natural resource degradation—primarily soils and agricultural biodiversity—on agriculture and human well-being.
