Reducing the environmental footprint of irrigated agriculture in an arid environment to sustain irrigated crop production.
Improving sugar beet germplasm and disease management to increase yield and reduce product losses.
Developing environmentally sound management practices for integrated dairy-irrigated crop production systems.
Our Imperfect SSR Finder is used by geneticists on every continent but Antarctica!
Real-time calculation of crop water stress index for wine grapes. The daily crop water stress index values readily detected differences associated with the three irrigation treatments, and can be used to actively manage water stress in vineyards.
Develop and release sugar beet germplasm like KDH13 – the first sugar beet doubled haploid line. This genetically pure parental line has exceptional resistance to beet curly top virus and is being used by the major sugar beet seed companies to improve disease resistance.
