Extension

My extension programs are focused in agricultural field crops, particularly corn and soybean. My overall goal is to address the needs of Iowa growers by identifying primary insect issues of economic concern. Objectives include insect identification, providing management guidelines, and promoting IPM alternatives to promote long-term sustainability.
