Noelle Orloff is the plant identification diagnostician for the Schutter Diagnostic Lab. Her main role in the Schutter Lab is identifying plants submitted by growers, ranchers and homeowners and providing management recommendations if needed. Examples of current research include investigating perennial weed control in organic and diversified cropping systems, and exploring rangeland plant community response to weed control measures. Noelle received her master’s degree from MSU in 2012, and this work focused on improving ecologically-based management of cheatgrass in both range and cropland ecosystems.
