Aquatic and Non-Cropland Weed Science


Williams Hall 4401B


Dr. Richardson’s appointment as Aquatic and Non-Cropland Weed Scientist in the Department of Crop Science is 60% research and 40% extension. The primary responsibility of this position is aquatic weed management and the secondary responsibility is invasive plant management in non-cropland. This position is critical for development of integrated and sustainable weed management programs for reservoirs, lakes, ponds, other bodies of water, and non-cropland in North Carolina and the surrounding region. Vegetation on these sites must be managed in an environmentally sound manner to improve or maintain fish and wildlife habitat, improve biological diversity, and reduce the size and scope of alien plant invasions.
