Margery will cover the basics for diagnosis and treatment as well as some recent research about the different Xanthomonas bacteria that affect begonias or geraniums or ivy. She’ll also cover the latest problems due to Ralstonia and Pseudomonas species. Speaking of hard-to-control diseases, she will also teach the symptoms of tospoviruses (INSV and TSWV) and their kin showing up in flower crops. Knowing what plants to throw out can save you a world of trouble later.
