Beck, Gianessi, Warrior Join PMN Advisory Council

PMN welcomes Robert Beck (Pioneer Hi-Bred), Leonard Gianessi (CropLife Foundation), and Prem Warrior (Valent BioSciences) to the PMN Advisory Council. Richard Stuckey, council chair, said, "These particular appointments are intended to represent the fields of agronomy and crop science, as well as the needs of those in industry." Additional council members representing yet other segments of PMN's intended audience will be announced in the near future. The role of the advisory council is to advise the Plant Management Network on the types of content and functionality of value to PMN's audience of practitioners in the applied plant and agricultural sciences.

F&N Tests to Begin Accepting Soybean Rust Trials May 1, 2005


In an effort to facilitate the rapid dissemination of fungicide evaluations for the control of soybean rust, trial results for this disease may be submitted for publication in Fungicide and Nematicide Tests as early as May 1, 2005. New soybean rust reports will then be published online in real time. "It's hoped that by publishing in real time, we can facilitate the flow of information on control of this economically important disease," said Dan Egel, F&N Tests Editor-in-Chief. Submissions for real-time publication will be accepted from May 1 through December 31, 2005 and special submission guidelines are now available. Reports will typically be published online within 15 days of acceptance, and will be citable as F&N Tests, Volume 60. Published by the American Phytopathological Society, F&N Tests disseminates information on control of plant diseases in well over 100 field, ornamental, and horticultural crops. In order to make trial results as broadly available as possible, F&N Tests is available at no extra cost to subscribers and partners of the Plant Management Network under "Resources."
