Grain and vegetable crops are produced in the Texas High Plains and face old and new disease problems. Extension programs include agent training, coordination with grower/producers groups, plant disease fact sheets, as well as plant disease control and management options based on field trials and experiments. Applied research involves characterizing plant pathogens and the diseases they cause in order to implement management practices. The plant diagnostic lab component determines causal agents of diseased plants in a timely and efficient manner so that management options can be implemented as soon as possible.
