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.
