​APS Plant Health 2019

"Sow, Know, and Grow"

The theme, “Sow, Know, and Grow” seeks to define several things. First, it reflects the breadth of the discipline from applied field work to fundamental and exploratory work.

"Sow" and "grow" reflect the applied aspects, while "know," standing in for "knowledge," represents the more basic aspects of plant pathology.

Second, the theme reflects the development of ideas and the expansion of that knowledge ("know" and "grow") as relates to plant health—all while we "grow" the visibility of the discipline.

We hope to celebrate the applied aspects of plant pathology, during Plant Health 2019!
