Another Experiment Under Way

Phytophthora inoculum.

This morning I applied Phytophthora inoculum to my fungicide efficacy experiment, which marks the arrival of Day 1. So now both of my fir experiments in planting boxes at Rock Springs are now underway. It’s a big relief to finally have them set up and running.

Now my efforts will focus on collecting weekly data, applying fungicide treatments, supplying nutrients, and monitoring the flooding treatments. I can now shift my fall planning into high gear. I’m hoping to tackle comps in the fall, so that means I should be preparing for that too.
