Ep 35 Dr Brandon Horvath Plant Pathologist University Tennessee

This episode features Dr. Brandon Horvath from University Tennessee. Brandon is a turf pathologist with the university and a teacher and conducts turf research.

We catch on COVID and how he has adapted with teaching and life.

This discussion really gives some great information as we dive deep into the topics of diseases and fungicides. We speak about nematicides and diseases and the work that is being taken place there. We also speak about getting the best out of your products and what you need to do to achieve those results. I speak specifically to him on Pythium and the 3 main types they see in the US and what the differences are. We also look at application methods and what works and what doesn’t work as well as discuss newer chemistries on the market.

There is so much information here as we spoke a lot longer than expected and I really appreciate Brandon’s time.
