Responsibilities

I am the curator of the U.S. warm-season grass germplasm collection which includes over 8600 accessions of warm-season grasses. The collection is very diverse and includes over 500 species of warm-season grasses ranging from forage and grain types to ornamental and turf types. My responsibilities include the acquisition, regeneration, phenotypic/genotypic evaluation, and clonal and traditional germplasm maintenance of this valuable material.
