My Research

My research aims to investigate the practicality and efficacy of injecting insecticides and fungicide through center pivot irrigation for management of insects and diseases in cotton and corn. Chemigation is an alternative way of pesticide application that is highly uniform, inexpensive and especially can be implemented under severe weather condition that a ground rig could not be executed.
