Glen Harris was born and raised in southern New Jersey, where he worked on vegetable and cut flower farms on Coastal Plain soils. After receiving a BS in Horticulture from Penn State University and MS and PhD degrees from Michigan State University in Crop and Soil Sciences, he was hired by The University of Georgia in March of 1994 as an Agronomist for Soils and Fertilizers. Located in Tifton, Georgia, on the UGA Tifton Campus, his responsibilities include Extension, applied research, and teaching in the area of soil fertility for all agronomic crops. The focus of his programs is fertilizer management for cotton, peanut, and corn. This also includes the management of animal manure such as poultry litter and numerous by-products such as fertilizers, liming materials, and soil amendments. The emphasis of Dr. Harris's applied research program in recent years has been the evaluation of enhanced efficiency fertilizers such as urease and nitrification inhibitors, potassium fertilization of cotton, and calcium nutrition for peanut.
