Research Focus

The focus of this project is


  • Develop and validate analytical testing methods using FT-IR technology to differentiate 2,4 D and dicamba herbicides formulations.
  • Determine how to best sample soybean plants for the detection of auxin herbicides.
  • Work with the Bureau of Plant Industry and MSU Extension agents to participate in a growers educational program and design an off target field sampling program for best practices and fundamental integrated pest management.


Results will be updated once the research project is complete.


This information could enhance the position of Mississippi as an agricultural leader by exhibiting agricultural responsibility.
