The 2009 Bob Symons Lecture

Posted in Adelaide, news, Research, science, seminar at 1:13 am by cminge

Apple_closeupTo commemorate the career of Professor Robert H. Symons, FAA, FRS a special seminar will be hosted by the School of Agriculture, Food and Wine.

Professor Turner B. Sutton from North Carolina State University will discuss his work relating to the importance of disease management strategies and how disease management varies among moist cool temperate, moist warm temperate, dry temperate and subtropical regions. This is of relevance as many temperate fruit crops are now grown in the warmer temperate and subtropical regions of the world. These regions are warmer, and in many cases wetter than traditional production regions. In the warmer temperate and subtropical regions, the disease complex tends to be much more diverse and many diseases are more severe than in temperate regions. Downy mildew and bitter rot of grapes and Glomerella leaf spot of apples will be used to illustrate differences in their epidemiology between regions and how it affects the management strategies used.
