Hermiston Agricultural Research and Extension Center

The goal of the program is to develop and implement cost-effective reduced-risk Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices for irrigated crops in eastern Oregon, including potatoes, onions, corn, wheat, etc.  This goal is achieved through the integration of population dynamics studies, understanding insect behavior, and implementing biological and chemical control  methods.  My extension program delivers IPM information to growers, crop consultants, field experts, and  public in general following “one to one” approach, and developing on-farm demonstration trials, presentations, trainings, workshops, and extension publications.
