IPM Perspectives Vegetable Disease ID & Prevention with Dr. Beth Gugino

August 23, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Find out how to recognize the early signs of diseases and take steps to prevent them.

Taking an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach on sustainable and organic farms is all about planning, observation, and timely responses—nowhere is that more true than with plant disease.

Join Dr. Beth Gugino, Penn State University professor and extension specialist in vegetable pathology, to learn about observation and diagnostic tools you can use to recognize the signs of different diseases quickly, and how respond to before they get out of control. We’ll also discuss steps you can take to prevent disease in your crops. 

Dr. Gugino’s current research focuses on management of onion bacterial diseases, identification of soil-borne pathogens that affect tomato high tunnels, and identification of bacteria associated with soft rot and other potato diseases common in Pennsylvania.

This session is part of our IPM Perspectives series, featuring experts offering unique insights, tools, and techniques to help you manage pests on your farm in a more proactive and sustainable way.
