Dr Kildea’s  research programme focuses on the development of sustainable disease control strategies for Irish arable and potato crops.  To achieve these goals, he incorporates detailed fungal population studies with applied field trialling. Currently Zymoseptoria tritici on wheat, Rhynchosporium communeRamularia collo-cygniPyrenophora teres on barley and Phytophthora infestans on potatoes are the key pathogens investigated.
