Research Project: Impact of Bioenergy Crops on Pests, Natural Enemies and Pollinators in Agricultural and Non-Crop Landscapes.

Location: Pest Management and Biocontrol Research

Project Number: 2020-22620-022-03-R
Project Type: Reimbursable Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Mar 1, 2011
End Date: Feb 28, 2017

Quantify the impact of the introduction of bioenergy feedstock crops (canola and switchgrass) on the pest, natural enemy and pollinator complex in the Arkansas and Oklahoma agroecosystem.

We will study various aspects of arthropod dispersal in complex agroecosystems containing potential biofuel crops using protein mark-capture methods.
