What You Will Learn:

This session is a hands-on workshop that will provide information and instruction on identifying plant diseases using minimal equipment. Rapid, on-site identification of some plant diseases is possible with commercially available test kits and cell phone cameras. The trick is knowing what to test and look for when diagnosing the problem. In-house test kits for various pathogens will be available for demonstration and use, as well as guidance in pathogen characteristics and using cell phone cameras with and without hand-held microscopes to capture features will be shown.
