Drs. Amanda Buchanan and Adam Ingrao are moving on to new jobs after making great advancements in asparagus entomology in our lab. Amanda as a postdoc was working on using flowering plants to enhance biocontrol of asparagus miner and, Adam did a Ph.D. on molecular gut content analysis of predators collected from asparagus agroecosystems and the chemical ecology of asparagus. We will miss both of you and good luck in your future endeavors!
