Several students from LSU’s Plant Pathology and Crop Physiology Department toured around California to learn about plant pathology problems in agriculture after the American Phytopathology Society’s annual meeting in Pasadena, California. Eduardo Chagas has made a video of our trip. Please, follow the link below to watch learning in action. Briefly, we traveled to Semenis Inc. in Oxnard, Cal Poly Strawberry Center in San Luis, Dow Agro Sciences in Fresno, Driscoll’s in Watsonville, USDA Research Station in Salinas, U.C. Davis and Langetwins Family Winery and Vineyards in Lodi. In all, Sebastian Albu, Adam Bigott, Eduardo Chagas, Dongfang Hu, Ally Lunos, Jingyu Peng, Yen Raruang, Josi Rezende and Rebecca Sweany attended to the trip. Thanks to APS, College of Ag, Department of Plant Pathology and Crop Physiology, Ken Damann, Clayton Hollier, Jeff Hoy, and Ray Schneider for financial support. We came back to Louisiana as experts on California agriculture and after everyone shares our video…..movie stars!!! Stay tuned for our full report of the trip in a future blog post.
