USA, Lexington Kentucky - July 13th, 2007 (Joe Omielan) - Project Update
Leaves were tagged before being inoculated.
Spores were mixed with talc and “sprinkled” onto moistened leaves. The control plants had just talc applied.
Biosafety protocols required protective apparel for worker safety and/or to prevent spread of the pathogen.
After inoculation the plants were placed in “dew chambers” to maintain leaf wetness long enough for infection to occur.
