Dr. Roger works to promote, direct, and conduct effective extension educational programs in the area of water resources management, including both quantity and quality issues, concentrating on agricultural production. The water quantity issues he focuses on are primarily related to irrigated agriculture, including: irrigation development, irrigation systems, water utilization, water management and energy for irrigation.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

  • Kansas State University, Professor, Extension Agricultural Engineer, Irrigation and State Extension Leader, 2010 – present, full time
  • Kansas State University, Professor, Extension Agricultural Engineer, Irrigation, 2010 – 1994, full time
  • Kansas State University, Associate Professor, Extension Agricultural Engineer, Irrigation, 1983 – 1994, full time
  • Kansas State University, Assistant Professor, Extension Agricultural Engineer, Irrigation, 1977 - 1983, full time

With regard to his participation in the Ogallala Water CAP project, Dr. Rogers notes: “Water supplies for irrigation continue to diminish and face increasing competition. Therefore, in-​field management of applied irrigation water to meet producer goals is becoming increasingly important. Since basic irrigation management strategies cross state boundaries, irrigation support tools, including irrigation scheduling tools, can have broad and effective application. This project will also allow synergistic tools to be developed for the region.”
