Our main area of interest is peach research and extension with a focus on orchard management, tree longevity, irrigation practices, root interaction with tree health, production, and plant breeding and genetics. The lab’s main objective is to study plant production based on the plant’s genetic potential, orchard management practices, growing environment, and their interactions. Our aim is to identify the optimal interaction of the plant and the environment, having the highest potential of plant production and profit for the growers and the industry.
