Field Crop Disease Guides Available

Nathan Kleczewski, Extension Specialist – Plant Pathology;

Hillary Mehl at Virginia Tech and I have updated the Field Crop Disease Management Guides, which is part of a larger section of the Virginia Tech Agronomic Guide. To help you, I removed our disease management sections for relevant crops in Delaware and Maryland. The guide has information on scouting, IDM, and chemical recommendations for soybean, small grains, corn, and forage for DE, VA, and MD. Copies will be made available at the county offices and will also be posted online on the new Plant Pathology webpage, which should be launched soon. Contact me directly at for an electronic copy. Your local extension agents can also be contacted for copies.
