Fruit Pathology Resources at The Ohio State University
                          Michael A. Ellis, Plant Pathology - Professor  

In addition to my responsibilities in research and teaching, here at The Ohio State University, I am a State Extension Specialist with The Ohio State University Extension. It is my duty to provide the most reliable and current information available on diagnosis and control of fruit crop diseases to Ohio fruit growers and other interested clientele. There are two major groups of clientele; commercial fruit producers and backyard fruit growers and gardeners. I have implemented educational programs to address the needs of each group. A separate series of bulletins and fact sheets have been prepared for each group and educational programs have been designed and implemented to address their specific needs. A major emphasis has been placed on the development and implementation of integrated disease management programs for the various fruit crops grown in Ohio. Helping fruit growers in Ohio to effectively control their major disease problems is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job.
