Mission

The Crop Production and Pest Control Research Unit conducts research to minimize crop losses due to insects and pathogens and improve soybean quality. Specific projects are directed toward discovering the genetic, biochemical, and molecular mechanisms that confer insect resistance in cereals, disease resistance in grain crops and soybeans, and influence the chemical composition of soybean seeds. The information is applied to devise innovative strategies for insect and disease control and develop germplasm with improved quality traits, pest resistance, and agronomic characteristics.
The Crop Production and Pest Control Research is located in West Lafayette, IN and is part of the MIDWEST AREA.
The Research Leader is Steven Scofield.
