Angela Orshinsky

Angela OrshinskyDr. Orshinsky's research program covers a variety of commodities including vegetables, turfgrass, hops, and landscape ornamental plants. Her approach to plant health management includes investigating plant protection products that upregulate plant defense responses, developing cultural recommendation practices that promote beneficial microbes and discourage disease development, and working with plant breeders to screen for pathogen resistance.  These approaches are not mutually exclusive, and her extension and outreach program is focused on communicating the benefits of integrating these practices for optimal plant health to vegetable growers and landscape managers.
