A bit more on the meeting topic:

Establishing a successful integrated pest management (IPM) program in the landscape or nursery must begin with the proper diagnosis of diseases and disorders. The Florida Extension Plant Diagnostic Clinic (FEPDC) located at the Tropical Research and Education Center (TREC) in Homestead is committed to helping clients properly diagnose plant diseases and disorders, and inform growers of effective management strategies. An accurate diagnosis is of critical importance not only for large-scale growers, but also for small operations and individuals with private plant collections.
With a steady increase of housing and development, urban agriculture is on the rise, making it more important than ever to practice environmentally sound disease and pest management strategies. This presentation will highlight common and economically important diseases affecting palms and provide practical IPM strategies for the nursery and landscape.
