Diagnosing Plant Problems
April 4 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
We are all familiar with the saying, “a picture is worth a thousand words,” and pictures are one of the most valuable pieces of information when working to diagnose plant problems. But what type of photos should you be taking and what other information should you be collecting when identifying a new threat?
Having this collection of photos and information before reaching out for consultation is important in helping to diagnose an issue correctly and efficiently. In turn, this process will cut down on the time spent on the problem and avoid costly diagnostic mistakes.
This webinar will help growers:
- Build an information checklist to use when gathering information for accurate plant issue diagnosis
- Review what types of photos are the most useful and how to take them to reduce the amount of time you need to re-take photos
- Get a glimpse of the plant diagnosis process through the lens of a technical specialist to help with communication during the process
This information can be applied whether working internally with a cultivation team or externally with cooperative extension personnel, product vendor representatives, or technical specialists.
