About the Program

Take Action on Diseases is a farmer-focused educational platform designed to help farmers proactively manage fungicide resistance. While the issue of fungicide resistance is not a severe as herbicide resistance, the goal of the program is to help farmers stay ahead of the problem.

The four areas of focus for Take Action on Diseases include:

  • Scouting and identification
  • Disease development
  • Cultural practices
  • Economic thresholds

Resource development for Take Action on Diseases is led by program advisors Carl Bradley, University of Kentucky; Daren Mueller, Iowa State University; Kiersten Wise, University of Kentucky and other contributing pathologists.
