My primary research interest is in the management of plant-parasitic nematodes on cotton and soybean. I am especially interested in the application of precision agriculture to nematode management including site-specific application of nematicides utilizing soil type maps generated using soil electrical conductivity. My primary extension interest is the management of Asian Soybean Rust in South Carolina.
