NYSIPM at Cornell University is kicking off a new monthly seminar series to increase awareness of new research and techniques that advance IPM and its adoption in all types of pest management settings.
Seminars are once-a-month on Thursdays
Virtual Meet and Greet for those with special interest in the topic: 12:20- 12:30
Next up on March 18:
Cerruti RR Hooks, University of Maryland
A Fortuitous Partnership: The Tale of a Winter Cover Crop and Strip Tiller Crusade Against Pests
Cerruti RR Hooks is an Associate Professor & Extension Specialists at the University of Maryland. He has a MS degree in Weed Science from N.C. State University and a PhD in Entomology from the University of Hawaii. His research program is multidisciplinary and involves the use of conservation tillage (e.g., no-till, strip-till) and habitat diversification to influence above- (arthropods, weeds) and below-ground organisms (soil mites, free-living nematodes). His research is conducted in conventional and organic agronomic and vegetable cropping systems. His seminar will mostly focus on work that members of his lab have been doing with respect to using cover cropping and conservation tillage to manipulate arthropods and weeds in conventional and organic vegetable systems.
