The course will introduce you to common plant diseases in crop plants. It is based on short introductory sessions followed by practical exercises, in which you diagnose plant diseases under field conditions as well as in the laboratory. The exercises include diagnosis based on macroscopic symptoms as well as microscopy, ELISA and PCR methods and quantitative disease assessment under natural conditions. The influence of abiotic stresses and leaf senescence on macroscopic symptoms is considered as well. Most exercises are done in small groups under supervision of teachers. This will allow you to study specific subjects in more detail, as basis for analyses, data processing and reporting.

Lectures and exercises are offered by several researchers and technicians specialized in the different diseases and techniques.
