Description

Every year the plant and insect diagnostic clinic receives many samples of crop disease and insect problems. Some problems can be readily diagnosed in the field or clinic, but there are always those difficult look-a-like diseases, unique disease symptoms on some hybrids and environmental stressors that can be vexing to us all and make accurate diagnosis more difficult. This presentation will help you identify some of these issues in the field and know when it is best to submit a sample to ISU. A majority of the presentation will consist of clicker question activities followed by discussion. We will also discuss how to use the Plant and Insect Diagnostic Clinic to your advantage.
