Research in this area involves applied field studies focused primarily on topics related to wholesale nursery production and the landscape industry.This research tends to focus on plant production issues (substrates, nutrition, weed control) and plant evaluation.

Current focus is in two areas: 1) development of ground and aerial remote sensing techniques to automate inventory processes for open-field nurseries, and 2) a statewide evaluation of woody landscape plant material.
