Ph.D., 1973 Michigan State University, East Lansing

 

Research Area:
Integrated pest management (IPM) on tree fruits; IPM programs as components of integrated fruit production (IFP) systems.

Description of Research:
Research activities involve studies on the biology, ecology and management of insect and mite pests and their natural enemies on deciduous tree fruits. Main research themes have been: selective control tactics for major and minor fruit pests; pesticide effects on natural enemies; monitoring and management of insecticide and acaricide resistance in tree fruit pests; prediction of pest phenology; cultivar susceptibility to pest attack; and pest management under conventional, organic and integrated fruit production (IFP) systems.
