Professional Interests:  Integrated Pest Management, Sustainable Agriculture

Research: Lily Calderwood’s research and education program works to develop whole system approaches to wild blueberry production in Maine. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is at the forefront of her work. Successful IPM programs improve the overall health of farms by incorporating subjects such as fertility, soil health, and plant physiology into pest management. Research projects in this new role will include weed surveys of wild blueberry farms, organic weed management tools, climate adaptation, and product assessment. Past projects studied insect-plant interactions and biological control on lavender, cut flower, hop, dry bean, grains, and oilseeds. Her applied research and education helps growers to identify and address on-farm needs.
