Department Chair: Dr. Bob Trigiano, Head
Many of the projects within the department involve interdisciplinary activity. These studies include close cooperation and interaction with soil scientists, plant geneticists, horticulturists, veterinarians, and ecologists. For instance, the department has special interest and expertise in alternative methods of insect and disease management such as biological control, resistant cultivars, integrated pest management, and cultural control techniques, to help meet the need for healthful food production without, or with reduced, use of pesticides.
