Great Lakes Expo Fruit, Vegetable and Farm Market
Extension specialists and researchers from land-grant universities in the U.S. develop information from from research and Extension projects and collaborate with each other to produce production manuals for their reigon.
CucCAP Plant Pathologist, Mary Hausbeck, has released new Greenhouse Disease Management recommendations for 2022. The Hausbeck Lab collaborated with other MSU Extension specialists to develop a guide for disease management for vegetable and herb crops.
CucCAP researchers and stakeholders met on October 27, 28 & 29, 2022 to present and discuss the grant’s accomplishments, ongoing research, plans and expectations. Lina Quesada-Ocampo (NC State University), Mary Hausbeck (Michigan State University), Chris Smart (Cornell University), Anthony Keinath (Clemson University), Shaker Kousik (USDA-ARS), Jonathan Schultheis (NC State University), Daniel Tregeagle (NC State University), and Mary Lorscheider (NC State University Extension communicator) reported on the Integrated Disease Management Team’s progress.
Researchers in Dr. Mary Hausbeck’s group at MSU have developed a highly sensitive DNA-based protocol to genetically distinguish between spores of cucumber downy mildew and hop downy mildew from spore trap samples. The enhanced sensitivity enables detection 5-10 days before symptoms appear in cucumber fields, providing a broader window for initiation of chemical control.
CucCAP plant pathologist Mary Hausbeck will make 3 presentations at the 2021 Great Lakes Expo.
