Dr Ivan Grove is an Applied Crop Scientist whose research focuses on precision agronomy which includes scientific understanding and management of plant parasitic nematodes and plant/soil water conservation. The overall objective of his work is maintaining or improving the world’s crop production and this is now further aided by the growing inclusion of precision farming tools such as remote sensing and aerial imagery in his work.

- Research interests are based around applied crop science in relation to nematode management and soil and water conservation. Precision Agronomy has become inbedded into the work with particular interest in spectral reflectance for crop stress. This links in well with my research on a range of crops in relation to water and nematode stress, which can cause similar water and nutrient shortage responses.
