Current Applied Research Projects

  • Evaluations of new and registered fungicides and biopesticides for diseases affecting conventionally and organically produced vegetable and herb crops on Long Island. Annual experiments supported primarily by the IR-4 Project and industry. Results are used for grower recommendations.
  • Monitoring fungicide resistance in the cucurbit powdery mildew pathogen (long-term project started in 1990)
  • Cucurbit IPM for Reducing Pollinator Exposure to Key Fungicides (4-yr, fall 2015 – 2019)
  • Farmer Designed Systems to Reduce Tillage in Organic Vegetables (5-yr, Sept 2014 – Sept 2018)
  • Information-Based Ecological Management of Potato/Tomato Late Blight (2-yr, Dec 2015 – Dec 2017)
  • Integrated Management of Tomato Chlorotic Spot Virus, an Emerging Tospovirus Threatening Tomato Production in the Eastern United States (3-yr, fall 2015 – 2018). TCSV images and information
  • Bio-fumigation with a Mustard Cover Crop for Managing Phytophthora Fruit Rot of Watermelon (2-yr, 2015 – 2016)
  • Breeding Fresh-market Tomato Lines with Improved Fruit and Genetic Control of Late Blight, Early Blight and Septoria Leaf Spot for NYS (2-yr, 2015 – 2016)
  • Improving Integrated Management Practices for Phytophthora Blight in New York (3-yr, 2014 – 2017)
