Extension

Christy Hoepting

Program extension goal

The goal of my extension program is to provide leadership in vegetable entomology by providing and generating research-based information that leads to significant advancements in vegetable pest management such as better efficiency of management inputs, increased compatibility with natural occurring biological control and improved safety to the user, environment and consumers.

Specific goals of my extension program include the following:

a) Develop linkages with vegetable extension and the vegetable industry
b) Communicate effectively with the vegetable industry
c) Support the vegetable industry in New York
d) Educate youth about entomology and science.
