Development of Plant Disease Exercises for County Master Gardener Coordinators and Volunteers and other Green Industry Members
The Cornell Plant Disease Diagnostic Clinic staff is proposing to create a hands-on training tool and a train the trainer program. The tool kits (2) will contain everything needed a county educator to perform a continued educational activity with county staff and volunteers, those that interact with the public on a regular basis. The goal is to use common diseases in the environment, set-up a microscopic view with images of structures and explanations of disease cycles. Subject matter experts will ensure materials are accurate and that focus on important IPM priorities and concepts are included.
