About the Webinar
Alex Stone will explain what white mold is, and how to diagnose it on
the farm. She will discuss the life cycles of the biocontrol agent,
Contans (Coniothyruium minitans), and the white mold pathogen (Sclerotinia sclerotiorum). Farmers will learn how to incorporate Contans into an integrated white mold management program.
Alex Stone is a Vegetable Cropping Systems Specialist at the Oregon
State University Department of Horticulture. She formerly worked as an
