Current Research Programs
· Etiology & Biology of Tree Crop Diseases
Examine the etiology & biology of diseases affecting deciduous fruit/nut trees, grapevines, oak trees, and strawberry, while developing sustainable disease management practices that do not rely on methyl bromide
· Rice Genetics
Improvement of rice germplasm for temperate environments.
· Sustainable Floriculture
Sustainable production in greenhouse based floriculture systems.
· Sustainable Viticulture
The biology and sustainable management of grapevine diseases and vineyard weeds. Examination of the molecular microbial ecology of the rhizosphere.
· Alternatives to Methyl Bromide
In a 5 year area-wide project we are demonstrating the use of alternative technologies that provide pest and pathogen control equivalent to methyl bromide fumigation.
