Webinar: Chemical Control of Invasive Weeds: Herbicide Selectivity, Modes of Action, and the Use of Herbicides
May 17, 2023 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm CDT
Presented by Dr. Franck Dayan, Professor of Weed Science, College of Agricultural Sciences at Colorado State University.
Dr. Franck Dayan is a Professor of Weed Science in the College of Agricultural Sciences at Colorado State University. He joined the faculty of in January 2016 after a 20-year career as a research plant physiologist for the USDA-ARS. Dr. Dayan is interested in functional plant genomics and his research program encompasses applied projects on herbicide mode of action and evolution of resistance in weeds to more basic projects aiming to use genomic approaches to decipher traits imparting weediness (competition, cold and heat stress tolerance, etc.). He is also interested in the relative contribution of each of the 3 wheat genomes to specific pathways associated with primary metabolism. Dr. Dayan’s expertise is in plant biochemistry and physiology, as well as chemical ecology complements the efforts already in place in other groups at Colorado State University.
