Bio: Jacob Prater, PhD is an Assistant Professor and Discipline Coordinator of Soil and Waste Resources at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point. He is active in teaching and research with courses in soil science, water resources, and waste management. Jacob’s passion is Soil Resource Sustainability or as he likes to put it “Building Soil”. Jacob’s research interests are varied and include Soil Health and Quality, Agricultural Sustainability, Waste Resource Use, and Contaminant Fate and Transport. He is currently investigating the usage of vermicompost in ginseng production, the effects of fire and thinning on forest soil quality/health, managing phosphorus fertility with gypsum (FGDG), and transport of ethinyl-estradiol and bisphenol-A in soils receiving biosolids. Previous research has been in the areas of phosphorus fertility and management (tillage, runoff, and crop use), biochar, precipitating struvite from landfill leachate, and endocrine disruptor fate and transport in soil.
