Research Associate Professor
- Nematology: Globodera pallida biology, population genetics and control
Assistant Professor, Extension Seed Potato Specialist
Duellman’s research focuses on all aspects of seed potato production, with the overall goal of improving quality. Specific emphasis is on pathogens important to seed potato production and seed health and to seed-related aspects of commercial potato production. Her extension program focuses on providing relevant, timely, science-based, non-biased information to growers and the industry.
Director, Seed Potato Germplasm Program
Durrin’s experience includes plant tissue culture, plant virology and nematology. She has worked with potatoes in a laboratory and greenhouse setting for the past decade. In her current position as director of the Nuclear Seed Potato Program, she maintains tissue culture of over 300 potato varieties including public, private and research lines. She strives to provide seed potato growers and researchers with quality pre-nuclear seed they can rely on.
Extension Pesticide Specialist and Professor
Hutchinson, Pamela J.S.
Associate Professor, Potato Cropping Systems Weed Scientist
Premier Potato Cropping Systems Weed Management Program. Increased database of hairy nightshade biology in potato cropping systems. Hairy nightshade control with targeted tank mixtures. Potato variety tolerance to new potato herbicides. Effect of glyphosate carryover in tubers of multiple potato varieties. New information on herbicide management of the Pale Cyst Nematode trap crop Solanum sisymbriifolium.
Assistant Professor, Cropping Systems Agronomy
Xi Liang is leading a Cropping Systems Agronomy program with focuses on crop physiology in response to abiotic and biotic stresses, irrigation management and alternative crop agronomy (e.g., cover crops and quinoa).
My research focuses on starch chemistry and its influence on human health and functionality. Starch is the major glycemic carbohydrate source for humans, and the final digestion product — dietary glucose, is a major energy source and affects some physiologic responses. Starch is also the major eatable component in crops, such as potato and wheat, and its properties and interaction with another macro- and micro-molecules have a significant impact on crop end-use quality.
Interim Department Head, Professor
Professor, Soil Biochemistry
My research program is focused on the fate and transport of synthetic and natural organics in soil and water systems, with a specific interest in natural pesticides.
