Each month Grow Monthly shares a selection of new and favorite webcasts that provide applied knowledge to practitioners, the Extension community, and those they serve. Formerly behind a paywall, these webcasts from crop protection experts are now freely available.
Featured Webcast

FRUIT DISEASES HUB
Strawberry gray mold, caused by Botrytis cinerea, is very resistant to fungicides. Scott Cosseboom presents results from a survey of fungicide resistance of the pathogen population in California that illustrate a dynamic multifungicide resistance issue.

FOCUS ON CORN 
The quality of stored corn relies on proper storage management. Kenneth Hellevang recommends a variety of management practices, covering corn temperature, moisture content, and procedures for monitoring stored corn.

FOCUS ON COTTON
Sustainability is important to consumers. The U.S. Cotton Trust Protocol is a voluntary farm-level program designed to help growers meet the sustainability needs of the textile supply chain. Gary Adams introduces the requirements for participation in this program.

FOCUS ON CUCURBITS
Fusarium wilt is one of the oldest and most economically significant watermelon diseases, and effective management relies on exploiting weak links in the disease cycle. Bhabesh Dutta reviews the signs and symptoms of the disease, conditions that favor development, and the disease cycle to help cucurbit growers identify weak links.

FOCUS ON POTATO
Phosphorous acid can be used in potato post-harvest situations for disease control. Steven B. Johnson explains the differences between phosphorus-containing compounds used in agriculture, what pathogens are controlled by phosphorous acid, and how to apply the material to potatoes entering storage.

FOCUS ON SOYBEAN
With prescriptive agriculture, growers can submit their farm data to receive tailored recommendations. John Fulton discusses the three primary precision ag data layers (agronomic, machine, and production data) and how they converge.

FOCUS ON TOMATO
High tunnel greenhouses create an environment favored by tomato diseases such as brown leaf mold, tobacco mosaic virus, and Fusarium wilt. Discussing grafting, fungicides, rotations, and more, Judson Reid teaches what and what not to do to grow a healthy tomato crop in a high tunnel.

FOCUS ON WHEAT
Cultural practices associated with dual-purpose wheat production uniquely impact disease incidence and management options. Charlie Rush explains the causes and impacts of mite-transmitted virus diseases, factors that impact vector and disease incidence, and specific actions that will minimize losses.

REVIEW
This article succinctly summarizes progress to date in breeding and cultural and chemical control. Patel et al suggest an integrated approach and highlight how multiple control measures can be much more effective than relying on a single control method.

RESEARCH
Using accredited material is an important part of establishing perennial crops for agricultural and natural habitats. However, it can be less attractive to consumers when considering the increased cost of materials. Swiecki et al. clearly demonstrate the importance and effectiveness of using Phythopthora-free nursery stock for establishing healthy restoration sites.
