Evergreen Pest Short Course


The American Phytopathological Society (APS)--in cooperation with the University of Minnesota Department of Plant Pathology and Department of Forest Resources --will sponsor a short course entitled "Evergreen Tree Pest Management" on March 26-27, 1998 in St. Paul, Minnesota. This is a two day, hands-on, intensive workshop covering disease, insect, and abiotic problems of evergreens.
