  Welcome to the BLUE-CRAN-ENT Lab


I head the Entomology Research and Extension Program at the Rutgers Marucci Blueberry and Cranberry Research and Extension Center in Chatsworth, New Jersey.

The goal of my research program is the development and Cesar Rodriguez-Saona pictureimplementation of cost-effective reduced-risk insect pest management practices for blueberries and cranberries. This goal is achieved through the integration of chemical, behavioral, and biological methods in insect control and a better understanding on the ecology of insect herbivores and their natural enemies. My extension program delivers pest management information to growers by conducting on-farm demonstration trials, presentations, and extension publications.

I am a Graduate Faculty in the Departments
of Entomology and Ecology & Evolution
