University of Georgia

The chemical company BASF and the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences will partner to sponsor a master's-level research program in vegetable entomology.

BASF will provide $30,000 to support the research work of graduate student James Taylor at the Coastal Plain Experiment Station in Tifton, Ga.

"The support of an entire graduate program for a master's student in entomology is a significant and notable contribution to the advancement of agricultural science, particularly in the area of vegetable production, which is vital to Georgia," said David Riley, CAES entomologist and Taylor's major professor.

Taylor, a Tifton resident, has extensive experience in insecticide evaluation and field testing as an undergraduate, Riley said.
