Dr. Sanyal is a ‘Soil Health Specialist’ with Department of Environmental Science, joined University of Arizona in January 2022. His ‘soil health research and extension program’ focuses on developing suitable soil health indicators to understand fundamental soil biogeochemical processes in a desert agroecosystem. By conducting applied research and extension programs to meet stakeholder needs, his team disseminates significant research findings through statewide education and outreach programs, supporting farmers, ranchers, gardeners, and other stakeholders in improving soil health in their production systems.
