The Vegetable Pathology Lab at NC State University conducts field trials each growing season to study plant pathogens, resistance of plant varieties to pathogens, and vegetable disease management strategies. When a field trial is harvested, the crop is evaluated for disease damage and then vegetables are weighed, graded, and evaluated for marketability. Results of these trials are published in Plant Disease Management Reports (PDMRs). Visit the lab website to view PDMRs from previous years.
