Current Job Responsibilities:
Responsibilities include research on the effects on cultural practices and soybean resistance and tolerance on soybean cyst nematode (Heterodera glycines) population densities and soybean yields. Research also is investigating the basic biology of H. glycines egg hatching, the stimulation and inhibition of hatching of H. glycines eggs with natural and synthetic compounds, and the interactions of soybean insect and weed pests with H. glycines. Extension responsibilities are all plant-parasitic nematode species.
