Insect and Disease Diagnostic Key

This section includes pest and disease identification keys for individual fruit and vegetable crops. The key asks a series of questions and walks you step by step through the diagnostic process.

For additional crop disease information, contact the University of Minnesota Crop Disease Clinic at: 612-625-1275.
