I conduct research on forage crops and bioenergy feedstock crops. Research involves variety development and genetic improvement, variety and germplasm evaluation, and research collaborations with other institutions. As a part of the Forage Breeding Project, my program has six major objectives: 1) yield and quality evaluation of experimental forage populations developed in the Cornell Forage breeding program, 2) yield and quality evaluation of forage varieties from seed companies marketing in the Northeast, 3) research on breeding for improved forage quality in alfalfa, and 4) cooperative research with NE-1010 Regional Research Project 5) research and breeding for resistance to potato leafhopper (PLH), alfalfa snout beetle, and brown root rot in alfalfa 6) bioenergy feedstock research.
