My MS research focuses on defoliation thresholds in soybeans in a double cropped system
I have a background in Agronomy from Brazil and originally came to the Reisig program as an intern during 2022. I collaborated in research projects involving Helicoverpa zea behavior in soybeans and damage in corn. I also worked on my own research, investigating the behavior of H.zea in different soil types. My MS research focuses on defoliation thresholds in soybeans in a double-cropped system.
