“The Plant Disease Triangle” is module 2 of the series: “Introduction to Integrated Pest Management for Plant Diseases in the Home Garden and Landscape”. This series was designed for advanced Master Gardener training, but is also appropriate for home gardeners who are interested in learning to manage plant disease/pest problems effectively, while minimizing adverse effects to health, non-target organisms and the environment. “The Plant Disease Triangle”, introduces important plant disease concepts that form the basis for identifying appropriate IPM tactics for home garden and landscape situations. Actual plant disease examples illustrate these concepts and demonstrate how to develop an IPM strategy in a home garden or landscape situation.
