Bruce Hibbard is working to:

  • Investigate the biology, pest/ host interactions and chemical ecology of major corn insect pests, especially as they relate to resistance management.
  • Identify, develop and release corn germplasm with native resistance to major corn insect pests, especially corn rootworm.
  • Determine the mechanism(s) of resistance and its inheritance to Bt crops.

All research areas aimed at improving corn rootworm management or our understanding of rootworm biology will be considered.
