About the Program
Take Action on Diseases is a farmer-focused educational platform designed to help farmers proactively manage fungicide resistance. While the issue of fungicide resistance is not a severe as herbicide resistance, the goal of the program is to help farmers stay ahead of the problem.
The four areas of focus for Take Action on Diseases include:
- Scouting and identification
- Disease development
- Cultural practices
- Economic thresholds
Resource development for Take Action on Diseases is led by program advisors Carl Bradley, University of Kentucky; Daren Mueller, Iowa State University; Kiersten Wise, Purdue University and other contributing pathologists.
