Plant Pathologist Keeps Growers Alerted to Downy Mildew Risk
Kenny Seebold of the University of Kentucky Extension program explains the best way to harvest and store pumpkins for the fall. Downy mildew has the potential to not only harm pumpkins but other crops as well. With this knowledge, Seebold observes weather patterns to predict where the downy mildew will hit next. Scientists hope that this early forecasting will help prevent further farm damage.
