Ginseng Replant Disease Research Update – Dec. 1, 2015

OGGA and OMAFRA will be providing an update on ginseng replant disease research to interested ginseng growers on Tuesday, Dec. 1 at 1:00 pm in the Simcoe Research Station Auditorium. This meeting will follow the Ginseng Pesticide and Research Prioritization Meeting, which will be held from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm that morning. Lunch will be provided for those interested in staying for both meetings.

The update will feature the following:

  • The overall research plan and progress to date
  • Results of a survey of ginseng fields treated with different fumigants (chloropicrin, metam-sodium and Telone)
  • Effects of fumigants and biofumigants on replant disease
  • Effects of biofungicides on ginseng diseases
  • Comparison of soil fungi in replant vs non-replant sites
  • Effects of ginseng wash-water on disease pressures in ginseng

This will be followed by a discussion and Q&A period.

If you intend to join us for lunch, please RSVP to the OGGA office by email to info@ginsengontario.com
