2001 - B.S. Agroecology, University of Wyoming
My research program focuses on developing sustainable weed management programs in agronomic crops, especially sugarbeet, winter wheat, corn, and dry beans. Recent research projects include:
- long-term management of jointed goatgrass in imidazolinone-resistant (Clearfield) winter wheat
- synergistic herbicide combinations for management of feral rye
- new herbicide options in proso millet
- effect of long-term glyphosate use in glyphosate-resistant (Roundup Ready) cropping systems,
- use of ethofumesate in glyphosate-resistant (Roundup Ready) sugarbeet,
- management of volunteer corn in dry beans and sugarbeet.
