Dr. Tracy C. Leskey
Supervisory Research Entomologist, USDA-ARS


Dr. Leskey's research program is focused on developing effective monitoring tools and management strategies for invasive and persistent native arthropod pests in temperate fruit production to increase ecological and economic sustainability. Currently, we have projects targeting the invasive brown marmorated stink bug and spotted lanternfly, and persistent native pests, plum curculio and apple maggot fly.

Dr. Luke Gatiboni
Associate Professor and Extension Soil Fertility Specialist


Dr. Gatiboni's applied Research and Extension program focused on the use of fertilizers to maximize crop yields and profitability while minimizing nutrient losses to the environment. The main goal of the program is to refine soil test-based nutrient and lime recommendations. The activities include field trials and greenhouse studies to establish the relations between the soil fertility, the soil test results, the use of lime and fertilizers, and the crop responses to these factors.
