Study examines root rot in hydroponic leafy greens

The University of Connecticut Greenhouse Research & Extension team is conducting a study in root rot of hydroponically-grown leafy greens.

They would like to collect plant samples with root rot from commercial operations in the U.S. Grower participation will help better understand how microbes interact in roots and potentially identify beneficial microbes that reduce the risk of plant pathogens in hydroponics. 

Participants would benefit from this study by receiving a free diagnosis of what is causing root rot in the sample and early access to the information generated from this project.

This project is sponsored by USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture, Hatch Multistate project accession number 1020637.
