Research Interests: Crop production systems, irrigation, crop nutrition, and market quality, for both existing and alternative high-value crops, including:

 -  evaluate crop cultivars for adaptability to distinctive Columbia basin environment.

 -  develop appropriate uses of crop production technologies such as drip irrigation, polyethylene mulches, row covers and transplants to extend production, improve quality and increase yields of high-value commodities.

 -  refine recommendations for plant nutrient management, including fertilizer sources, rates, timing and placement, for irrigated, high-value crop production systems.

 -  improve crop production technologies, including IPM practices, to minimize negative impacts of agricultural production on the environment.

 -  test and evaluate new production technologies, such as genetically-engineered crops, herbicides, insecticides, and fumigants.

-  address production constraints as they arise with timely, problem-solving research.

Specialty: Vegetable crops culture and management.
