***COVID-19 update: MSU has barred all non-essential travel, and halted all non-essential on- and off-campus research activities until further notice. Currently I am working from home and filling in as needed with daycare. We will need to call, text, email, mail, or video chat in the meantime until we’ve exhausted all possibilities before I can ask permission to travel.***
Home gardeners should call the gardening hotline at 888-MSUE4MI (888-678-3464) or submit a question to Ask an Expert.
I serve commercial vegetable producers in West Central and Northwest Lower Michigan. My duties include fielding producer questions during and after the growing season, providing seasonal updates on vegetable crop management, pests and diseases, developing educational materials, and organizing educational events for growers.
