AREA OF RESPONSIBILITY

I have two primary responsibilities.  The first of those is plant disease diagnostician for the Schutter Diagnostic Lab (http://diagnostics.montana.edu/). We receive and diagnosis over 1000 disease samples a year, mostly from mid-May to mid-September.  Additional samples are received for insect ID and plant ID.  The plant clinic is part of the Great Plains Diagnostic Network (http://www.gpdn.org/) and National Plant Diagnostic Network (http://www.npdn.org/).

My second responsibility is to coordinate the MSU Urban IPM Program (http://www.msuextension.org/urbanipm/).  The objectives of this program include maintaining a certification program for Urban IPM Practitioners, developing IPM resources for the urban environment, and training landscape professionals, homeowners and consumers.
