12:00 – 1:00 pm
Join us for a webinar covering new research to improve your fire blight management, including fire blight life cycle and activity, blossom blight prevention, and incorporating plant growth regulators, copper and biologicals.
Dr. George W. Sundin is a Professor of Plant Pathology and runs the Tree Fruit Pathology Lab at Michigan State University. He has been at MSU since 2002 and has Extension responsibilities in tree fruit disease control. His research includes field and lab studies covering management of fire blight, fungicide resistance in apple and cherry pathogens, and the evaluation of new bactericides and fungicides for disease management in apple, cherry (sweet and tart cherry), and peach. Main diseases covered include fire blight, apple scab, bacterial canker, cherry leaf spot, and brown rot. The main goal of Sundin’s Extension program is to provide timely information and recommendations on management of tree fruit diseases to growers in Michigan and in other fruit-growing regions.
This live presentation will be recorded and posted on the OFVC website.
