Maine Mycological Society Presentation
January 19 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Garden of Host Plants — Fungal Pathogens in Your Backyard
Come learn about the hosts and life histories of some dodgier members of the fungal kingdom with Alicyn Smart. Alicyn is an Assistant Extension Professor & Extension Plant Pathologist at University of Maine, Orono. She identifies diseases present on plants submitted to the diagnostic lab at the University and many of these diseases are caused by fungal pathogens. A lot of MMA members are gardeners, so this will be a good crossover presentation. Alicyn will introduce us to some fungal actors in the garden and orchard and offer management recommendations.
