Podcast E8 S2: Don't play with fire blight (ENCORE)

Wednesday, May 26, 2021

Guest Dr. George Sundin

As I was driving to a farm this month, I listened to our very first episode from 2019 about fire blight. Not only is it our most popular episode but it’s also timely. So I’ve decided to release this episode to revisit my conversation with Dr. George Sundin. This episode is oozing with information about bacterial growth on flowers and in trees, misconceptions, trauma blight, and why antibiotics need to be timely.

Dr. Sundin is a Professor of Plant Pathology and runs the Tree Fruit Pathology Lab at Michigan State University. He performs extension and research in tree fruit disease control including management of fire blight, fungicide resistance, and the evaluation of new bactericides and fungicides.
