- (2022) Resilient dryland farming appropriation (RDFA) 2021 – 2022 annual report: Cover crop trial This report presents the data from the third year of a three-year study. In this relatively wet season, fall-planted cover crops, particularly winter peas and the fall mix, produced substantial biomass and provided season-long ground cover. Spring-planted cover crops had insufficient time to grow before termination was necessary and did not produce substantial biomass. More details about the RDFA project can be found at the project's main page (link provided on .pdf).

- (2021) Designing cover and alternative crops for dryland cropping systems in Eastern Oregon Oregon wheat growers typically use long fallow periods to conserve soil moisture. However, issues with current production practices include: negative impacts on soil health, organic matter, pH, and nutrients. Soilborne diseases are also a concern. This project Introduction to Resilient Dryland Farming Appropriation will generate information to assist growers in designing wheat-alternate cropping systems that will improve soil health without decreasing wheat yields.
The Resilient Dryland Farming Appropriation (RDFA), a product of a farmer-led initiative, supports research to develop resilient cropping systems that increase drought, heat, and disease tolerance; improve grain yield and quality; and enhance economic and environmental outcomes of dryland crop production systems.

My responsibilities include to develop and lead research and outreach programs that integrate chemical, cultural, and mechanical weed control measures using new or novel approaches for weed management in the wheat-based production systems of eastern Oregon. They will focus on weed management issues of critical importance in dryland cropping systems, including fallow based systems, with the intent to foster adoption of best practices leading to effective weed control, while preserving the environment and maintaining or improving crop yields.
