Research Emphasis

I work with field and vegetable production, with emphasis on cotton, sorghum, potato, and citrus.

Dr. Schuster has been at A&M-Kingsville since 2008. In addition to her teaching duties, she has a 25 percent appointment with AgriLife Extension.  Previously, she worked in the Integrated Pest Management program in the Division of Agriculture at West Texas A&M University.  She also held a 25% appointment with Texas Cooperative Extension with Plant Pathology and the Entomology.  The objectives of my extension program are to provide relevant education and collaborative field support to producers in South Texas.
