Study the biology and ecology of weeds

Current research and/or projects

  • Cover crops in nothern vineyards and sweet corn
  • Bird's rape mustard
  • Herbicide resistant weeds
  • Develop long term best management practices for weed control in cropping systems with limited environmental impact
  • Provide knowledge of weed biology, population dynamics, and ecology as the basis for the development of integrated contol startegies with reduced impact on the environment
