Dr. Lindsey du Toit

Lindsey du Toit, Vegetable Seed Pathologist, was interviewed for the APS Plantopia podcast episode Seeds! which addresses the important role of seeds in our lives, what it takes to produce seed, and the impact of seed pathology on agriculture. Inspired by the United Nations declaration of 2020 as the International Year of Plant Health, the American Phytopathological Society created the podcast series Plantopia (www.plantopiapodcast.org) where plant pathologists explain how protecting plant health can protect plants and our food supply to ensure a sustainable future.
