Ludhiana, June 19
Dr Jaspinder Singh Kolar, Director, Extension Education, Punjab Agricultural University, has suggested that an integrated approach for plant disease management should be adopted, as no single method on plant disease management can provide an effective and viable control of plant diseases.

He expressed his opinion while addressing participants of a training programme “Integrated approached in Plant Disease Management for Sustainable Agriculture” organised by the Department of Plant Pathology, PAU.

Dr B. S. Thind, Head, Plant Pathology, also spoke on the occasion. As many as 40 participants from the main campus/research stations and Krishi Vigyan Kendras of the PAU, besides other universities, attended the training programme.
