​About Grow: Plant Health ExchangeSM

The Plant Management Network (PMN) has been reimagined. Welcome to Grow: Plant Health ExchangeSM​!​

​Grow is a nonprofit, freely available, onlin​e resource of timely, science-based information on plant health. It's a place for plant health management professionals to exchange knowledge and discover the latest applied research:​

  • ​Applied researchers generate the content for Grow, sharing their work and amplifying their reach.

  • Plant health practitioners consume the content on Grow, relying on this user-friendly platform to provide proven plant health science.​​

As an outreach service of The American Phytopathological Society, Grow: Plant Health ExchangeSM serves the needs of educators and students, diagnosticians, county agents, advisors, consultants, pesticide applicators, and other professionals in plant health management. And unlike other content providers, Grow delivers peer-reviewed, impartial information that applies to a broad range of geographies and crops.
