59th Annual Conference on Soilborne Plant Pathogens

Come and meet with colleagues from the western U.S. working on various aspects of soilborne fungal pathogens, nematodes and diseases- from the molecular to the applied.  This meeting is very informal and loosely structured, allowing lots of time for discussions and interactions. We will have a field trip on Tues. March 26 to visit local nurseries, berry and fruit producers. We will have a social/wine tasting/dinner at Lumos Winery in Philomath, OR.  Research presentations will be on Weds, March 27 and Thurs., March 28. The focus of the Symposium will be Oomycete Pathogens and Diseases, with talks
