Julie Pasche

Julie Pasche is a plant pathologist at North Dakota State University and the Neil C. Gudmestad Endowed Chair of Potato Pathology. The mission of her research program is to improve management of economically important diseases of potatoes. Currently, Julie’s focus is to develop quantitative molecular diagnostic assays, with a focus on soil-borne pathogens. Her program also works heavily in fungicide resistance and integrated pest management. She is fortunate to work with a talented group of post-docs, research scientists and graduate students on fungal, fungal-like and viral pathogens of potatoes. In the future, Julie will work to integrate molecular tools to identify disease resistance and better understand pathogen variability, facilitating the development of long-term management strategies.

The Canadian Spud Congress was held on Feb. 24 to 25, 2021. This was one of the presentations from it.
