Dol Prasad Dhakal
Freelance Researcher, United States


Dr. Dol Prasad Dhakal currently working as a freelancer Researcher after quitting job from Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center, Lubbock, Texas. I have been working as a senior research scientist in the entomology research program in this institute up to last February 2024. I have worked on developing biologically and ecologically intensive arthropod management strategies for the Texas High Plains recently. It emphasizes factors that enable the integration of different pest management approaches, with a broad objective of reducing unilateral reliance on chemical control and advancing the use of ecological methods. I focused on ecologically based IPM research, particularly on corn, cotton, and sorghum pests in the region. I have a long and wide range of research and developmental experiences working on more than 20 years in the field of crop protection. I am now working on maize weevil research to assess ecological parameters in stored corn to develop maize weevil management options.
