The year 2020 could only be described as getting used to the new normal every day and learning to accommodate collaboration virtually. Community outreach was done virtually and this video is the talk about soil microbes, crop pathology, and soils research from scientists across Montana.
Pathogens collected in the field.
Our team collects samples around Eastern Montana. We bring samples into the lab for identification. We make fungal corn spawn that is applied to field plot. Field Plot Maintenance Planting, Harvesting, Fungicide Application, Weeding, Inoculum Application
