Weed Management in Small Grains

The primary goal of my applied research program is to provide Minnesota's agricultural producers and agricultural professionals with the information needed to make effective, economical, and environmentally sound weed management decisions in small grains. To accomplish this goal, I conduct field research on experiment stations and in growers fields.

Weed Management in Corn and Soybeans

The primary objective of my extension program is to develop a more sustainable corn and soybean production system via the principles of safe, effective, and cost-efficient weed management. My weed management research program is designed to be applicable to Minnesota growers' needs and the primary objective is to help growers diversify their weed management program.
