Plant Pathologists at the Department of Agriculture, Trade & Consumer Protection (DATCP) survey Wisconsin’s agricultural crops for plant diseases and nematodes. They check for newly introduced problem organisms and monitor levels of known diseases and nematodes. Samples are tested at DATCP’s Plant Industry Laboratory, providing diagnostic services to facilitate export certification, inspections and surveys. In 2008, field surveys focused on the following crops and diseases: Early Season Diseases of Soybeans and Winter Wheat; Soybean Viruses; Potato Cyst Nematode; Soybean Cyst Nematode and Viruses and Stewart’s wilt of Seed Corn.
