MyIPM provides critical crop protection information for strawberry growers.

“Growers will be able to pick effective and safe fungicides for conventional and organic production of strawberry,” said Guido Schnabel, the fruit specialist who worked with software designer Roy Pargas. “The app will — in a nutshell — tell you with audio, pictures, and text what you need to know about a particular disease and its management.”

guido labIn 2012, I presented this award to Dr.. Schnabel’s outstanding team at Clemson. The award was the the Outstanding Researcher Award of StrawberryDoc, LLC, for 2012.

I personally feel that Dr. Guido Schnabel, Professor & Plant Pathologist, Clemson University, is most deserving of further awards in the future for the development of this exciting new App, and for the excellence of his research program in identifying the critical nature of a problem that our strawberry industry across the Mid-south is now facing with fungicide-resistant isolates of B. cinerea. We all appreciate  his willingness to set up a needed laboratory service at Clemson for free fungicide resistance testing that is helping growers to manage gray mold without triggering fungicide resistance issues. I predict that in future years fungicide resistance testing by strawberry growers will become as commonplace as plant tissue testing!
