Strength in Numbers – Assessing the Impact of New and Emerging Field Crop Diseases
Changes in climate and production practices have led to new and emerging diseases in corn and soybeans. Assessing the impact of new diseases across a broad geography has traditionally taken extensive time. However, the formation of the Crop Protection Network, a multinational group of university research and extension pest management specialists, has created a platform for information exchange about these diseases. The Network has developed interactive yield loss tools to assess the impact of new diseases and more effectively link causal issues, such as climate, to these losses. Tune in to our upcoming webinar to hear about these tools from Kiersten Wise, Professor in the department of Plant Pathology at the University of Kentucky.
