Dr. Larry Gut
As a tree fruit entomologist, I conduct research and extension activities in apple, cherry, peach and pear. My goal is to develop a technology and knowledge base that supports the implementation of Integrated Pest Management programs in tree fruit. My research interests include mating disruption and other selective controls, sampling insect populations and development of treatment thresholds, insecticide resistance management and biological control of fruit pests. It's my belief that a strong education and on-farm research program will greatly facilitate adoption of novel pest control tactics and strategies in tree fruit production.
