Silvia I. Rondon
My appointment is 75% extension and 25% research. I am interested in developing an Ecological Based-Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program in various crops. My area of expertise: biological control, insect biology, ecology, and population dynamics; both basic and applied (field and greenhouse production). Crops I have worked: potato, sweet potato, asparagus, cotton, corn, soybean, alfalfa, wheat, strawberry, and vegetables. My major responsibilities as an Extension Entomologist at OSU are to attend emergencies in irrigated crops such as potatoes, grasses, onions, carrots and others in Eastern Oregon.
