Overview of current program:

My program responsibilities reflect Michigan’s diversity and currently include asparagus, snap bean, broccoli, carrot, celery, cucurbits (cucumber, melon, pumpkin, squash), onion, pepper, tomato, greenhouse vegetable transplants, ginseng and hop. I am also involved in floriculture crops, with emphasis on poinsettia, geranium, cut flowers, bedding plants, and herbaceous potted plants. Although my laboratory is involved in a wide variety of research projects reflective of my broad commodity responsibility, my overall goal is to reduce Michigan growers' reliance on fungicides through novel and integrated management strategies and enhanced knowledge of pathogen etiology and epidemiology.

Extension and outreach activities:

I am an Extension Specialist for the crops listed in the above paragraph. Results of my research are regularly presented to growers at meetings such as the Great Lakes Fruit, Vegetable and Farm Market Expo and printed in extension publications such as MSU Extension News: Agriculture.
