Learn to Prevent Diseases in Your Vegetable Garden

Learn to Prevent Diseases in Your Vegetable Garden

Diana Alfuth, UW-Extension Horticulture Educator


Was your vegetable garden the victim of diseases last year?  Did your tomatoes die off from blight, ending the harvest early?  Did you have spots and blotches on your vegetable plant leaves or fruits?


Unfortunately, plant diseases are a part of gardening, but there are many things you can do to prevent diseases, or at least reduce them to a tolerable level.  Understanding how diseases occur, and how and when to prevent or control them, will make your vegetable growing endeavors more successful and fun!


Dr. Brian Hudelson, Director of the University of Wisconsin Plant Disease Diagnostics Clinic will discuss Diseases of Tomatoes and Other Vegetables at a presentation at the River Falls Public Library on Tuesday, March 13, from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.


Everyone is welcome, and admission is free but space is limited so pre-registration is requested.  To reserve a spot in this class, please call the UW-Extension office in Pierce County at 715-273-6781.
