Leslie Holland, UW-Plant Pathology
Introduction of Leslie Holland's research and extension experience in fruit crops. Brief overview of future research directions in berry disease management.
My research program focuses on the diagnosis, biology, and management of pathogens affecting fruit production in Wisconsin, specifically – cranberry, apple, cherry, grape, and other specialty fruit crops. We use basic and applied research to address disease challenges of fruit production and translate these findings into practical information for stakeholders. Research projects are driven by grower needs. Research interests include fungal disease complexes, fungicide/bactericide resistance, disease forecasting, biological control, cultural and chemical management.
Goals of the UW Fruit Pathology Lab include:
