Kelly Avila is a Post Doctoral Researcher and works with CucCAP Plant Pathologist Dr. Lina Quesada in the Vegetable Pathology Lab at NC State University. She chose to work in the Quasada lab because of the focus on Extension, integrated disease management, and genomics.
This disease was confirmed on squash in Johnson County, North Carolina on August 25, 2023. Disease incidence was approximately 15% and the affected leaves showed 45% disease severity.
The Vegetable Pathology Lab at NC State 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 weighed, graded, and evaluated for disease damage and marketability.
Dr. Lina Quesada will make a presentation at this meeting.
Two members of the CucCAP Integrated Crop and Disease Management Team were selected to receive APS awards in honor of their significant contributions to the science of plant pathology at Plant Health 2023.
