Christopher PhilipsResearch in Dr. Philip's lab focuses promoting plant health through the development of sustainable integrated and organic management systems of arthropod pest, pollinator and beneficial species of fruit and vegetable crops. Studies are broadly based in IPM, emphasizing an understanding of the impact of agricultural management on insect ecology and pest suppression. The overall goal of his program is to develop, evaluate, and help implement sound integrated and organic management practices of existing and emerging pests, to enhance the profitability and sustainability of fruit and vegetable production.
