While studying for my Master’s degree in Plant Pathology at Michigan State University, I am researching a fungal disease called Fusarium root rot, which affects dry bean production in Michigan.  My research hopes to measure the impact to dry bean growth and yield that this disease causes and look at potential fungicides to help protect dry beans.  To learn more, watch my short video!
