The biggest impacts of my research has been in the areas of integration of livestock in apple production (4-5 farms have adopted this practice in the Upper Midwest) and improvement of the application and refinement of on-site and open rearing biological control systems in greenhouses (Numerous greenhouses in the Kalamazoo area have increased their use of these systems since my lab's involvement).

  • Training and tacktics for organic farming systems
  • Agroecosystem dynamics
  • Identification of insect predators and their function in perennial agroecosystems
