Managing Crop Nutrient Levels to Control Plant Disease

Dr. Don Huber will follow up on his plenary session by sharing more insights from over 50 years of research on nutrient-disease interactions in plants. He will discuss key principles for controlling plant disease through crop nutrition, in particular nutrient/micronutrient interactions. Dr. Huber’s in-depth understanding will help you identify how managing crop nutrition can increase production and sustain the ecosystem.

Title: 
Don Huber
Presenter Affiliation: 
Purdue University
Bio: 
Research on GMOs. Award winning, internationally recognized scientist, and professor of plant pathology at Purdue University for the past 35 years. His agriculture research is focused on the epidemiology and control of soil-borne plant pathogens, with specific emphasis on microbial ecology, cultural and biological controls, and the physiology of host-parasite relationships. His research over the past few decades has led him to become very outspoken against genetically modified organisms (GMO) and genetically engineered (GE) foods and the use of Roundup in agriculture in general. Steve Pavich said he was the most vibrant speaker at Acres USA.
