Janet Lamborn 
Don't Put on the Virus Blinders
 (your collection depends on you.)

  Janet Lamborn has been involved in the plant diagnostic services for over fourteen years at Agida, Inc.  Starting in Agida's Testing Services Laboratory she gained considerable knowledge of the crops received in the lab, including orchids.  After several years in the Testing Services Janet moved into the Sales and Marketing Department.  She works closely with Agida's customers, including speciality crop groups such as orchid societies, making sure members  and hobbyists understand what they should be testing for and the options that are available.

We are going to look closely at each viral pathogen, what it looks like and how it is transmitted.  We will also talk about sanitation practices, testing options and what to do with those results. 

Plant Table will be provided by Dennis Olivas 

Speakerís Dinner before our next meeting is at 5:30 pm at the Sichuan Fortune House, 41 Woodsworth Lane, Pleasant Hill. Everyone is welcome to attend and meet our speaker before the meeting. If you can join us, please contact Yunor Peralta at (510) 304-6206 or to be included in the reservation.
