Program Description:

The vegetable pathology program provides information resources on disease issues significant to the vegetable industry of Indiana through research and education. Research may include field trials at a Purdue farm/commercial field or experiments in a greenhouse or laboratory. Extension efforts may include presentations held across the state either as a twilight gathering held on the farm or a winter meeting, on-site visits to commercial fields, or responses to phone or email questions. Feel free to use the contact information below to find out more about vegetable disease questions you may have.
