My research group focuses on diversified cropping systems, weed ecology and management, and the use of native perennial species for soil and water conservation and biofuel production. Included within the scope of our work are experiments involving crop rotations, cover crops, green manures, intercrops, reconstructed prairies, conservation strips, animal manures, composts, and insects and rodents that consume weed seeds. A list of research publications can be viewed at I serve as the Henry A. Wallace Chair for Sustainable Agriculture and am a member of the graduate faculties in Sustainable Agriculture, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Biorenewable Resources and Technology, and Crop Production and Physiology.
