Weed Science Program


Dr. Kanissery’s SWFREC research and extension programs will focus on the weed control and herbicide use associated with citrus and vegetable production in South Florida.  He plans to elucidate the mechanisms involved in the functional efficacy, retention, and transport of herbicides used in Florida agriculture soils with particular emphasis on excessively drained sandy soils and sandy soil textures in combination with high water tables.
