A number of diseases, including downy mildew, can be devastating to a cucurbit crop (cucumber, pumpkin, squash, watermelon, cantaloupe, etc). Agents and commercial cucurbit producers are invited to attend the Cucurbit Downy Mildew Training to learn about downy mildew and other diseases that may be mistaken for this disease.

Workshop activities will take place both inside and outside and will include an instructional lecture and an on-site field visit to observe and examine disease symptoms/signs in various cucurbit crops. Please dress accordingly.

The Cucurbit Downy Mildew Training is being offered in Northeast (Verona) and Southwest (Crystal Springs) Mississippi in 2019. Trainings in Northwest and Southeast Mississippi (locations still to be determined) are planned for 2020.

The Cucurbit Downy Mildew Training is free, but advance registration is required.
