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.
