Anita Dille is a professor of Weed Ecology at Kansas State University. She conducts research to understand emergence, growth, competition and seedbank characteristics of important weed species in Kansas and uses that information to evaluate how cover crops, herbicide programs and tillage can be combined within integrated weed management programs for their control. Anita received her B.S. and M.S. degrees in Crop Science (weed science) at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada, and her Ph.D. in Agronomy (weed science) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
