Growing Healthy Plants: Basics in Plant Disease Management
Gardeners everywhere have suffered losses of vegetables, flowers, trees and shrubs due to plant diseases. An understanding of how plant diseases get into your yard or garden – and how they are able to infect your plants – can help you develop strategies to avoid serious problems.
Growing healthy plants in your yards and gardens doesn’t have to be difficult or time consuming. UW-Extension is offering a class where you can learn techniques to grow healthy, happy, disease-free plants.
Dr. Brian Hudelson, Director of the Plant Pathology Lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison/Extension, will talk about how plant diseases occur and how they affect your plants. Strategies for preventing and managing plant diseases will be discussed to help you be more successful in the upcoming growing season!
