Each year, commercial producers as well as home gardeners in Mississippi are affected by plant diseases that attack their crops, gardens, and trees. These plant diseases can significantly affect the outcome of a harvest. Dr. Rebecca Melanson, MSU Extension plant pathologist, will discuss disease development, the diagnostic process, and disease management in vegetables, fruits, and nuts. The presented information will help prepare home gardeners for tackling disease problems in their own backyard.
