Evil Twins: Plant Disease Look-alikes Webinar on May 20

Plant diseases are relatively insidious in any setting or situation.  When they can mimic each other and create management misfires, they can be even worse.  University of Wisconsin-Madison Plant Disease Diagnostician Dr. Brian Hudelson is Wisconsin’s go-to resource for identifying plant diseases and he is leading a webinar event to help plant growers and managers diagnose and manage some of these difficult diseases.

The webinar event is being held on Thursday, May 20, starting at 7 p.m.  Dr. Hudelson’s discussion will be emphasizing woody perennial diseases, but will include herbaceous plant diseases, as well.  The opportunity to immediately interact with Dr. Hudelson via questions about the slides and the diseases being discussed will allow participants to fully understand the concepts being portrayed.
