COVID-19 Advisory. NWREC is working to keep our communities safe and will provide most Extension programming virtually in addition to in-person. Effective March 16, 2020, WSU NWREC is closed to the public except for special events where measures are taken to manage against COVID-19. We remain available via email, phone and webconference.

Standing events and work parties may be impacted by this closure; please contact the event organizer if you have questions.

Washington State University holds the health and safety of personnel, volunteers, the public and event participants of critical importance. We are following the guidelines laid out by the Governor’s office and the Washington State Department of Health, as well as best practices outlined by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). At in-person events:

  • Participants will wear a face covering (covering nose and mouth).
  • Hand sanitizer will be provided to all participants.
  • All high-use surfaces will be sanitized prior to and following the event.
  • No more than 50 guests may eat inside NWREC facilities at one time. Events with catering headcounts in excess of this capacity will need to make alternate arrangements for meals.”

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.

This seminar is part of our new Pesticide Recertification Seminar Series, which will include 11 opportunities to earn a recertification credit! Thank you to Lydia Tymon and Carol Miles for their work in organizing this.
