Research activities associated with peanut-based cropping systems include developing recommendations for agronomic practices and weed control and cross-discipline recommendations for other pests and presenting those recommendations NC State Extension agents, consultants, farmers, and other agribusiness personnel. Participation in international activities primarily associated with peanut production, pest management and aflatoxin mitigation. Instructor or co-instructor of Southern Row Crops (CS 216/CS 163/CS 216 DE), Integrated Pest Management (CS 415), and Soil-Crop Management Systems (CS/SSC 462). Research activities in weed science in addition to peanut include evaluation of short and long-term management practices (herbicides, rotations, tillage, cover crops, other cultural practices) in major crops in North Carolina with emphasis on managing herbicide-resistant weeds. Additional areas of study include defining interactions of pesticides and adjuvant systems.
