As the Horticultural Crops Program manager, my primary responsibility is to facilitate the research of University of Maryland College of Agriculture Scientist and Graduate students conducting work at WyeREC. Program areas include tree and small fruit crops, vegetable crops, forestry crops, and ornamental landscape crops. Additional UME responsibilities include Regional strawberry production. In addition to the crop research responsibility,  I am also a site operator for the National Atmospheric Deposition Program and the Colorado State University sponsored UV-B monitoring program.
