PE Marucci Center for Blueberry and Cranberry Research and Extension


The goal of my research program is the development and implementation of cost-effective reduced-risk IPM practices for blueberries and cranberries. This goal is achieved through the integration of chemical, behavioral, and biological methods in insect control and a better understanding on the ecology of pests and their natural enemies. My extension program delivers IPM information to growers by conducting on-farm demonstration trials, presentations, and extension publications.
