Albert Tenuta - Early response tools for the field

OMAFRA Field Crop Plant Pathologist Albert Tenuta is working on an early warning system for producers, which will be able to identify diseases before they are visible in the field.

This is done using sentinel plots across North America which use spore samples to assess crop disease risk for producers.

Tenuta hopes to expand the network in future so more producers can benefit from this disease monitoring system.
