New Faculty: Dr. Mark Uchanski
Dr. Mark Uchanski is the new Specialty Crops Program (SCP) Coordinator at Colorado State University, based in Fort Collins. Uchanski started at CSU in late 2015 and brings with him fifteen years of experience in horticultural education, vegetable crop research, and outreach activities. Prior to his move to Colorado, Dr. Uchanski held a faculty position at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, NM where he taught horticulture and conducted chile pepper and onion research. His current teaching and research emphases are in the area of sustainable and certified organic vegetable production systems. He works with both small and large vegetable growers, assisting them with their production practices and finding their place in the food system. Originally from the far western suburbs of Chicago, Uchanski feels at home working with specialty crops producers on the plains and in the mountains of the American West.
