PP 502: Plant Disease Methods & Diagnosis

This is a core course in our graduate curriculum with the Department of Plant Pathology at NC State.  Students learn key methods to culture, inoculate, and identify members of the four groups of plant pathogens.  The students receive the skills necessary to complete a disease note for each of the plant pathogen groups and are exposed to techniques and skills associated with plant disease diagnosis.  The course meets twice a week for 2 hr 45 minute and is primarily a hands on lab based course.
