My program involves soilborne diseases with major emphasis on diseases of small grain cereals. Approaches being used involve the biocontrol of fungal pathogens using host resistance and antagonistic microbes. Efforts involve techniques ranging from the lab, greenhouse, and field. Problem solving is the main emphasis.
Soilborne diseases, especially those caused by fungi.
Mushroom identification, Biology of fungi.
Gardening, fishing, hiking, cross country skiing.
