Team members Jonathan Schultheis (NC State University), Mary Hausbeck (Michigan State University), Angela Linares (University of Puerto Rico), Jim McCreight (USDA, ARS), Lina Quesada (NC State University), and Chris Smart (Cornell University) developed a centralized cucurbit disease website, developed and posted diagnostic resources and disease control information, provided diagnostic and disease management assistance, conducted field days, cucurbit variety trials, and disease demonstration plots.
CucCAP Vegetable Pathology and Crop Production Extension Specialists published plant disease management reports and Cucurbit cultigen evaluations from recent field trials. These reports provide valuable information for cucurbit crop producers, seed companies and other CucCAP stakeholders.
Vegetable Extension researchers cooperate with extension agents, vegetable seed companies, and others to evaluate cucurbit crops for yield, marketability, and quality including damage from disease.
