Research and Extension efforts in the Long Lab are focused on applying knowledge of insect ecology towards real-world insect challenges faced by specialty crop producers in the north central region. We aim to incorporate stakeholder questions and needs into lab projects and have carried out successful on-farm research with collaborating farmers. Current efforts in the lab are focused on informing insect management in parsley, carrot, hemp, and small fruit production systems.
