Accomplishments

I work with commercial field and greenhouse vegetable growers who target fresh, wholesale and processing markets in the Bay and Thumb areas of Michigan. My duties entail crop scouting, pest identification, crop management and food safety consultation, resource development, educational programming and facilitation of research projects with MSU’s main faculty researchers and grower collaborators. I currently manage the annual release of the Midwest Vegetable Production Guide (mwveguide.org), and the Great Lakes Vegetable Working Group (glveg.net).
