Plant Pathology *

Tuesday, August 6 and Tuesday, August 13, 2024 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm

As any home gardener has found out, plants get sick too! This course will meet twice for two hours to explain the basics of what organisms cause plant diseases, covering bacteria, fungi, viruses, nematodes, and oomycetes. We will discuss how plants get sick, basic tips for diagnosing a diseased plant, and some of the control strategies used to promote plant health.
