UPDATE: Registration for the course is closed

The Plant Disease and Insect Clinic (PDIC) and collaborators are happy to announce a week-long Plant Problem Diagnostics Short Course to be held the week of July 25th, 2022. This is the third such course in the series, covering the central/Piedmont region of the state (following courses in the western (2018) and eastern (2019) regions).

This course is intended for state extension agents, and will be led by members of the PDIC and NCSU extension specialists. During the week, participants will visit field locations to diagnose plant problems on-site, as well as attend lab sessions to hone identification skills of pathogens, arthropod pests, abiotic disorders, and more.

We will be opening registration in early April. There is no cost for this course, but be sure to sign up quickly! It is limited to 20 participants with priority for agents working in the central region (see attachment for specific counties).

In addition, a few dissecting microscopes with cameras will be given to the offices of five agents who attend (details will follow after the course).

If you have any questions please contact Matt Bertone ( or the Plant Disease and Insect Clinic (

Thanks and hope to see you there!
