Zebra Chip Presentations Featured in Focus on Potato

 

Due to the recent zebra chip discovery in Idaho, the Plant Management Network is re-launching Focus on Potato’s “Zebra Chip Disease of Potatoes” by Dr. Gary Secor, Professor of Plant Pathology at North Dakota State University. Dr. Secor’s presentation will help users understand the applied aspects of zebra chip, such as diagnosis, host range, and management practices. And coming soon: Dr. Joseph Munyaneza, Research Entomologist at USDA-ARS, will discuss potato psyllid and its connections with zebra chip. View other presentations in Focus on Potato.


New Focus on Tomato Presentation Discusses Grafting

 

The latest Focus on Tomato presentation by Dr. Cary Rivard, Vegetable Extension Specialist at Kansas State University, covers grafting of tomatoes. Rivard talks about the tube-grafting technique, the preferred method of commercial grafters worldwide. Users will learn the tips, tricks, and techniques to carry out successful on-farm grafting.

 

Focus on Tomato is currently a prototype in need of funding for ongoing development. To learn more about supporting this important resource, view our brochure and sponsor form.


Narrow the Yield Gap with Focus on Corn

 

The latest Focus on Corn presentation, titled “Narrowing the Yield Gap for Corn Production” by Dr. Jeff Coulter, Extension Agronomist from the University of Minnesota, will help growers and agronomists recognize key opportunities for increasing corn yield within their cropping systems.
