I See Dead Plants

Plant Science Stories Rooted in the Everyday

The I See Dead Plants podcast shares the stories of people and plants, pests and pathogens, and the conflicts among them. Join us as we speak to the folks who are helping the rest of us live healthier, more productive lives through pest management research and education. We strive to make science accessible.

I See Dead Plants is created by the Crop Protection Network and hosted by Ed Zaworski. The Crop Protection Network is a product of land grant universities.

On this episode of the I See Dead Plants Podcast, host Ed Zaworski speaks with Dr. Andrew Penney, a former PhD. student at Iowa State University who now works with Bayer Crop Sciences as a Technical Agronomist. Andrew shares his past experiences as a student working to understand different fungicide application technologies and how they affect overall yield. He also explains his research findings from his article, published by Elsevier Ltd., called “Comparison of aerial and ground sprayer fungicide application technologies on canopy coverage, disease severity, lodging, and yield of corn”.
