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, Oct. 15, at the Fabian Garcia Science Center on the main campus. Community members can bring any legal plant to be examined by the students who will use what they learned in class to diagnose the plant.

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.
