As the weather warms up and we enter the growing season, there are many simple, effective precautions you can take to reduce disease pressure in your garden. Our team has developed two new visual resources to point out various garden practices to reduce the likelihood of disease issues.

Access the full page: preventing plant diseases in the garden. We also have a similar page about preventing plant diseases on farms.

Each web page highlights pieces of the image related to garden disease management. At the bottom of each page is a printable PDF version of each drawing. You are welcome to print these to use for your own educational efforts, or to post on a bulletin board at your community garden to remind gardeners of best practices.
