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.
