Reminder – Bulb and Stem Nematode Clinic at OFVC 2011

During the 2011 Ontario Fruit and Vegetable Convention (Feb 23rd and 24th, 2011 at Brock University, St. Catherines, ON), a diagnostic clinic for bulb and stem nematode (Ditylenchus dipsaci) will be held.  Bring samples of garlic bulbs from your farm to this free of charge clinic. Nematode specialists will be on-site testing the garlic samples to determine if they are infested with bulb and stem nematodes. Note that garlic bulbs infested with this nematode do not necessarily show symptoms. Take this opportunity to meet the experts and ask questions about the biology and management of this pest.

For more information, see the post from January 31. For additional details on the clinic contact Marion Paibomesai, Vegetable Crop Specialist, OMAFRA at 519-826-4963.
