Time to bone up on quarantined mum disease

Webinar focuses on dealing with chrysanthemum white rust

David Kuack | June 21, 2010

Society of American Florists and the American Nursery & Landscape Association are joining forces again this year with mum breeders, Syngenta Flowers, Ball Horticultural Co. and GroLink, to offer an educational webinar on chrysanthemum white rust. The webinar provides information on how growers can protect their crops against this serious quarantine pest.
The free webinar is conducted entirely online and takes about 30 minutes. Participants also have the opportunity to ask questions of Syngenta Flowers plant pathologist Jane Trolinger. Webinars are scheduled for June 29, July 7, 20, 22, 27 and August 3 at 10 a.m. EST. A Spanish session is scheduled for July 1.
