The Pendleton Cereal Pathology lab is focused on serving the producers and stakeholders of high quality Oregon wheat. My goal is to conduct relevant, practical, and applied research on the biology and control of plant-pathogenic fungi, viruses, and nematodes that limit yield of dryland wheat production in the Inland Pacific Northwest. Please contact me if you would like more details about our current research efforts or are interested in collaborating. My program is currently funded by the Oregon Wheat Commission, the Washington Grain Commission, USDA-ARS, The Oregon Ag. Experiment Station, the Agriculture Research Foundation, and industry partners.
