Community Invited to Bring Troubled Plants to NMSU, Will Be Diagnosed by Students

On Monday, community members can bring any legal plant to be examined by NMSU students who will use what they learned in class to diagnose the plant.

New Mexico State University students enrolled in this year’s diagnosing plant disorders class will be holding an outreach event for the community from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Monday, October 15, at the Fabian Garcia Science Center on the main campus.

Students will also address questions pertaining to plant health such as pests (insects and weeds), diseases and nutritional disorders.

They will be assisted by various professors in the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences including course instructor and Professor of Entomology, Plant Pathology and Weed Science Soumaila ‘Soum’ Sanogo, who said community involvement is important in the learning process.

Sanogo said if plant samples cannot be collected, community members can bring pictures of their plants with problems or just stop by to visit and ask questions about their plant problems.

For more information on the outreach event contact Sanogo at 575-646-3577
