WMNF’s Sustainable Living Program- Insects & Diseases & Vegetables Oh My!


On today’s WMNF 88.5FM Sustainable Living Program we’ll be talking about insects and diseases that affect vegetables we grow here in West Central Florida.

Today’s guests work at the University of Florida Gulf Coast Research and Education Center in Wimauma. This year’s AG Expo at the research center will be taking place on Wednesday November 4th. Gary Valled the Associate Center Director at the Research Center will join us; he’s an Associate Professor of Plant Pathology in Vegetable and Ornamental plants. Also we’ll have an Assistant Professor of Entomology in Vegetables and Ornamentals at the IFAS Research Center, Hugh Smith.
