Session Description

The plant has a disease problem. What can I do about it?

This session will examine leaf diseases of trees and shrubs caused by fungi, bacteria and viruses. We will review the factors that trigger infection and the appropriate management methods. The focus will be on non-chemical methods and also the use of new biological fungicides allowed for use in organic production. Participants will gain confidence for the management of plants on their client’s property.
