The extension plant pathology team at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is composed of four extension specialist and one extension educator. Extension specialists are located at the Panhandle Research and Extension Center (1) and the Lincoln campus (3). Our extension educator in Plant Pathology is the coordinator of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Plant and Pest Diagnostic Clinic. Our programming is accomplished with a TEAM approach to some of our core activities with each individual having responsibilities for specific crops or landscape plants. From sugar beets in the west to corn, soybean, wheat, or landscape plants across the state, our extension plant pathology team has someone who can help to better manage plant disease problems in the state of Nebraska.
