[Illinois] CABPN Workshop Nov.7,2012 - Weed Science and Plant Protection

Abstract


From the Dept. of Crop Sciences: The focus of my research program is to develop innovative approaches that ultimately expand our knowledge and understanding of weed biology, with a particular emphasis directed toward addressing the contemporary weed species infesting the major field crops of Illinois. My ultimate research goal is to establish a robust applied research program, supplemented with basic research fostered through novel collaborations with molecular biology scientists and ecologists, to provide economical and sustainable solutions to the fundamental weed management challenges plaguing Illinois producers. A contemporary weed biology research program should be holistic and engender partnerships that establish new research paradigms to address the dynamic nature of weed management in Midwestern agronomic cropping systems. My extension/research appointment provides many opportunities to develop new research projects that address the immediate and long-term needs of producers. Forming research collaborations with current weed science faculty and staff provides opportunity for contemporary weed management challenges to be addressed using both applied research techniques and research techniques unique to the University of Illinois weed science program.
