The Purdue Green Industry team is excited to announce three diagnostic training opportunities around Indiana.  This event will feature Purdue Green Industry Specialists (Janna Beckerman (professor and pathology specialist), John Bonkowski (diagnostician), Tom Creswell (clinical engagement professor and diagnostician), Kyle Daniel (nursery and landscape specialist), Ben McCallister (urban forestry specialist), and Cliff Sadof (professor and entomology specialist) addressing plant problems and their treatments while walking through the landscape. The specialists’ process of diagnosing plant problems will be discussed so attendees can be confident in diagnosing plant problems at their clients’ properties.  This educational opportunity will be focused on landscape problems that commercial green industry professionals will encounter in the ‘real-world’.

In addition to an afternoon session in English, the morning sessions will be presented in Spanish with translation assistance by Cliff Sadof and Carlos Reichman, Schuetz Insurance.  This is an exceptional opportunity within the Green Industry for industry professionals to learn in their primary language.
