Biography and Education

Biography

Why do weed populations occur where they do, or do not, in agricultural areas. Research into the spatial distribution of weed species and how they correlate to soil and crop parameters observed in agricultural fields might provide insight to explain their distribution. Through this knowledge, improved weed management practices may be implemented.

Education

Ph.D. Agronomy/Weed Ecology, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, 1998
M.S. Crop Science/Weed Science, University of Guelph, Ontario, 1994
B.S. Crop Science, University of Guelph, Ontario, 1991

Research

Site-Specific and Integrated Weed Management & Weed Ecology
  • Why weed populations occur where they do, or do not, in agricultural areas.
  • Research into spatial distribution of weed species and how they correlate to soil and crop parameters observed in agricultural fields might provide insight to explain their distribution. Through this knowledge, improved weed management practices may be implemented.

Teaching

There are four main courses in the area of Weed Science offered at Kansas State University:
  1. Weed Science (AGRON 330) is an introduction to weed identification, biology and ecology of weed species, means for weed management including cultural, biological, mechanical and chemical control, and how these are integrated into weed control for crop, range, horticultural, turf, and aquatic systems.
  2. Integrated Weed Management (AGRON 650) is a follow-up course to Weed Science and is co-taught by Dr. Dille and Dr. Jugulam. Through problem-based approaches in the course, students will use their knowledge to further develop skills on making best weed management recommendations for a diversity of systems across Kansas.
  3. Advanced Weed Ecology (AGRON 824) is a graduate course focused on readings and discussion to explore the interactions of weed species with their environment and experimental approaches to understanding the impacts of these interactions.
  4. Herbicide Interactions (AGRON 822) is taught by Dr. Jugulam with an emphasis on how herbicides interact with plants and their environment.
