Len Tesoriero (BSc, MSc, PhD University of Sydney)
I’m a Senior Plant Pathologist with NSW Department of Primary Industries having over 30 years experience in diagnosing plant health problems and conducting disease management research in Australia and South-East Asia. I have specialist skills with IPM in a range of crops including vegetables and olives. A significant part of several research projects that I have completed was to evaluate efficacy of chemical, cultural and biological controls for diseases. Besides publishing research in scientific journals I’ve co-authored several field guides and books on plant disease recognition and management.
