Brown Bag Seminar | Epidemiology and IPM of White Rot in Allium Crops
August 21, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Presented by Dr. Jeremiah Dung, Assistant Professor in the Department of Botany and Plant Pathology at the Oregon State University Central Oregon Research and Extension Center, Madras, OR. White rot is an extremely destructive and economically important disease of Allium crops, especially garlic and onion. The soilborne fungus that causes white rot can lay dormant in soils for decades and germinates in response to the presence of Alliums. Join Dr. Dung as he discusses the biology of the pathogen, the epidemiology and management of the disease, and current research efforts associated with a larger USDA-NIFA SCRI SREP project on stakeholder-prioritized pests and diseases of onion.
