Research Project: Impact of Bioenergy Crops on Pests, Natural Enemies and Pollinators in Agricultural and Non-Crop Landscapes

Location: Pest Management and Biocontrol Research

Project Number: 5347-22620-021-08
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Mar 01, 2011
End Date: Feb 29, 2016

Objective:
Quantify the impact of the introduction of bioenergy feedstock crops (canola and switchgrass) on the pest, natural enemy and pollinator complex in the Arkansas and Oklahoma agroecosystem.

Approach:
We will study various aspects of arthropod dispersal in complex agroecosystems containing potential biofuel crops using protein mark-capture methods.
