Description:

Learn to make better disease management decisions by understanding how different types of pathogens behave and the conditions that favor disease. We will review new diseases like spinach downy mildew, dig deeper into perennial diseases like Alternaria in brassicas, and cover other major disease outbreaks from 2018. We will take a tour of UMass Plant Diagnostic Lab and use a microscope to identify disease-causing organisms. Get all your questions answered and develop your own IPM plan for managing important diseases on your farm. 

Workshop is limited to 25 attendees.
