Research/Extension Projects

Dr. Renz’s research program focuses on weed management in perennial agronomic crops (alfalfa, pastures) and on invasive plants in natural areas. Research goals in Dr. Renz’s lab are centered on developing information that will improve management decisions related to weeds in these systems so that they can be implemented to maximize benefits to the farmer/land manager while minimizing impacts to the environment.
