I provide disease management advice for horticultural commodities in Iowa - fruits, vegetables, shade and forest trees, herbaceous ornamentals, and turfgrasses. A major emphasis is evaluating biological and reduced-chemical Integrated Pest Management techniques to enhance the sustainability of Iowa fruit and vegetable farms. These projects involve research trials on ISU farms as well as demonstration trials on commercial fruit and vegetable farms. My research and extension efforts are closely linked.
