- The use of chloride bearing fertilizers and their role in disease management in wheat
- Management of wheat by physiological growth stage
- Importance of genetic diversity in managing disease and insect pests of wheat
- Identification and management strategies for managing herbicide resistance in Italian ryegrass
I was also actively involved in the development of the Early Soybean Production System for Texas and the southern U.S.
