He attended the University of Arkansas where he completed his M.S. in Agronomy-Weed Science in 1990 and his Ph.D. in Agronomy-Pesticide Residue in 1994. He is currently a Professor at Texas A&M University in the Department of Soil & Crop Sciences where he has been employed since October, 1994. Dr. Senseman’s research program has concentrated on several aspects of herbicide chemistry including the effectiveness of grass buffer strips on removal of herbicides from runoff water, herbicide dissipation and carryover, herbicide absorption and translocation, herbicide effects on soil microbial activity, extraction method development for soil and water, and weed management in rice. He has authored or coauthored 81 peer-reviewed journal articles, 174 abstracts of poster and oral presentations, 7 technical reports, two magazine articles, and one encyclopedia entry. In 2007, he finished his service as the editor for the Weed Science Society of America’s Ninth Edition of the Herbicide Handbook. Dr. Senseman helped develop and teach an undergraduate course related to the evolution, role, and fate of agricultural chemicals in row crop production, two graduate courses related to herbicide mode of action and environmental fate as well as an analytical course related to instrumentation used in environmental aspects of agronomy. Dr. Senseman has served as major advisor or co-advisor for 18 graduate students and has served on 53 other graduate student committees during his tenure at Texas A&M.
