Subject Area: Weed Science


  • Weed control and herbicide usage in cotton, peanut and emerging crops
  • Herbicide drift and off-target injury
  • Herbicide physiology, environmental fate and herbicide-crop-weed interaction

Specialty Areas: Peanuts, invasive species, forages and pastures, right-of-ways, forestry, woody ornamentals, and support in turf

Areas:  Evaluate herbicides and alternative approaches to control weeds in commercial crops and reduce herbicide off-target movement from crop fields. Study interaction among herbicide, crops and high residue cover crops. Detect herbicide injury and off-target movement with UAV based remote sensing techniques. Promote best management practices to Alabama farmers to control weeds more effectively and efficiently.
