Fundamental Principles of Plant Pathology for Agricultural Producers (PPA-41)

All crops grown in Kentucky have the potential to become diseased under the right conditions.  A plant is diseased when it is affected by some agent that interferes with its normal development.  Plant pathology, the study of plant diseases, can be a very confusing subject for many.  This publication presents current basic concepts in plant pathology for growers.

Topics include: Infectious Organisms that Cause Diseases, The Disease Triangle, Managing Plant Diseases, Integrated Disease Management, and Sources of Information on Plant Diseases.

Fundamental Principles of Plant Pathology for Agricultural Producers (PPA-41) is available online.

For additional publications on plant diseases, visit the UK Plant Pathology Extension Publications webpage.
