Join us for the 2018 Miller Research Potato Pest Management Field Day.
Miller Research will be holding its annual pest management field day on Tuesday, August 14 at the Miller Research facility located near Acequia, ID (426 E 200 N). A short presentation will be given in the office followed by a tour of the research plots. Trials to be highlighted include research on pink rot and Pythium leak, Rhizoctonia canker and Fusarium dry rot, fumigation methods for Verticillium control, foliar disease management, virus symptoms in the field and storage, and potato bruise management.
The presentations will focus on fungicide management of diseases and will highlight research which has been funded by the Pacific Northwest Potato Research Consortium. Two ISDA pesticide recertification credits and three CCA (Pest Management) credits have been awarded.
The tour will run from 9:00 to 12:00. Lunch will then be provided.
There is no cost to attend, but please respond to Cheryn Clayton by August 6 at (208) 531-5124 or [email protected] if you are planning on attending.
