Can Nanoparticles Be Used To Manage Plant Diseases?

Dr. Wade Elmer, Chief Scientist, Department of Plant Pathology and Ecology

Dr. Wade Elmer is the Chief Scientist of the Department of Plant Pathology and Ecology.  He received his Ph.D. from Michigan State University in 1985 and began his career at The Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station in 1987.  His interests are to develop strategies to suppress root diseases of vegetables and ornamentals using combinations of mineral nutrition, soil amendments (biochar), and earthworms.  Recently, he has begun investigating the influence of metal oxide nanoparticles on plant health and root disease.  Understanding the mechanisms of suppression and their contributions to soil and plant health is a long-term goal. Dr. Elmer has authored or co-authored over 100 refereed manuscripts, 19 book chapters, and edited two books.
