Research Interests

  • Evaluation of crop and weed management strategies with emphasis on sustainability and economic returns
  • Gene flow in crops and weeds
  • Plant dispersal and its impact on management of invasive species
  • Weed seedbank dynamics
  • Evaluation of new herbicides and herbicide-resistant crop technology
  • Biology and ecology of problematic weeds

Extension Interests
