Current research goals:

- Engage agricultural producers to become aware of current and emerging crop pest problems, and work to develop solutions - Evaluate trends and report insect crop pest pressure for brassica seed crops, cruciferous vegetables, and sweet corn - Promote integrated weed and insect pest management options in vegetables, mint, and small fruits - Enhance adoption of biological weed control by conducting objective, applied research to improve efficacy
