ID plant diseases
through Vermont's New Farmer Project.
Intro to Plant Diseases and Management Strategies for the Farm
*a webinar presented by the UVM Extension New Farmer Project, June 24, 7 pm (EST)
Many of us walk into the field or greenhouse and are stumped by what we see. Is it insect damage, nutrient deficiency, plant disease, or something else? Join Ann Hazelrigg, director of the Plant Diagnostic Clinic at the University of Vermont, to learn to identify common plant diseases and learn strategies for managing them. Ann has degrees in Plant Pathology and Pomology from Colorado State University and Cornell. She will share her extensive collection of pictures for identification and her wide breadth of knowledge on plant disease. Bring your questions and on-the-ground experience to share! Newcomers to online learning are welcome. All you need to participate is internet access and a computer that you can hear sound through.
