Floriculture crops face a multitude of soil-related diseases, ranging from fungal to oomycete root rots, due to the diverse seeding sites and habitats they inhabit. To effectively combat these diseases, proper planning is essential.

The American Floral Endowment (AFE) is hosting a webinar on May 21, 2024, as part of its ongoing Grow Pro series, focusing on identifying and managing root diseases in floriculture crops. The webinar will delve into techniques for recognizing root diseases and strategies for dealing with the aftermath of root rot infections. Key topics covered during the webinar include:

Dr. Francesca Hand, Professor of Ornamental Pathology at Ohio State University (OSU), will lead the webinar titled “Identification and Management of Root Diseases in Floriculture Crops.” Dr. Hand brings extensive expertise to the topic, having previously served as an Associate and Assistant Professor at OSU, as well as conducting postdoctoral research at UC Davis. She earned her Ph.D. from the University of Florence in Italy.

Registration for the webinar is available directly through Zoom or by visiting the Grow Pro Webinar Series page on the AFE website, where details about future webinars in the series can also be found. Additionally, recordings of past Grow Pro webinars are accessible on AFE’s YouTube channel.
