Dr. Jim Marois
Professor - Plant Pathology
I am a Professor in the Department of Plant Pathology stationed at the North Florida Research and Education Center. My duties include conducting research on agronomic and horticultural crops appropriate for north Florida production systems, especially peanuts, cotton and corn. Present projects include epidemiology and control of soybean rust, etiology and control of Fusarium hardlock of cotton, development of Brassica carinata as a biofuel crop for the southeastern U.S., and a regional project integrating livestock into cropping systems. All projects have a strong interdisciplinary perspective and incorporate systems level strategies and objectives to develop viable farm production systems.
