Assefa Gebre-Amlak (PhD), Extension Specialist, Pest Management
My pest management work focuses on applied field crop integrated pest management (IPM) research and extension in production agriculture. As the Extension Specialist, I provide timely pest management information to crop growers and agricultural businesses. Other areas of my interest and work experience include developing and implementing IPM for small scale resource limited farmers and teaching pest management in both formal and informal settings. I am also interested in international programs in food security and improving agricultural education, research and extension in developing countries.
