Walter Fick

Dr. Walter Fick received his B.S. and M.S. degrees at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, majoring in range science. His major advisor eventually left for Texas Tech University, and Dr. Fick decided to follow him there to earn his Ph.D. degree – also in range science.

When Dr. Fick first joined the Agronomy faculty at K-State in 1978, the position he filled had just been created. It involved mostly teaching, and some research. Times have changed, and he now has a joint extension/teaching/research appointment. His work focuses primarily on control of brush and invasive species in rangeland, prescribed burning methods, grazing management, and range improvement practices.
