Bryan G Young

Botany and Plant Pathology 

  • Professor
Lilly Hall Room 1-351

Bryan earned his bachelor’s degree in crop and soil science at Michigan State University and doctorate in crop science (specialization in weed science) from the University of Illinois. He comes to Purdue from Southern Illinois University, where he spent 15 years in a weed science faculty position with responsibilities in teaching, research, outreach, and administration. His research focuses on weed biology and ecology relative to developing effective management strategies in agronomic crops, herbicide application technologies for optimization and stewardship of herbicide use, and the physiological characterization of herbicide-resistant weed biotypes. His goal is to bridge the basic and applied aspects of weed management research to assist in delivering more effective weed management recommendations to crop producers and land managers.
