Texas A&M AgriLife Exension offers a variety online gardning courses free of charge. One such offering is a self-directed course designed for Master Gardener interns to introduce the basic concept of plant disease development and an overview of the four common plant pathogen groups.
Plant disease is one of the most difficult topics for home gardeners. Although this course is designed for Master Gardener interns, experienced Master Gardeners may find this online course a good refresher on a complex topic.
These modules will provide some base information which will help participants gain a foundational understanding of the different plant-pathogen types, and will enhance better understanding of the material presented at classroom Master Gardener intern training on plant pathology.
