Researchers Looking for Spinach and Lettuce from NW Indiana

Do you grow spinach or lettuce in Northwest Indiana? Drs. Lindsay Gielda and Scott Bates in the Dept. of Biological Sciences at Purdue University Northwest would like to collect a few samples from your farm. They are studying how the endosymbiotic fungi that naturally live on spinach and lettuce might inhibit the growth of pathogenic E. coli strains on these plants. They need samples from a variety of farms (large and small) in order to gain a better understanding of the diversity of endosymbiotic fungi that occur in this area. If your farm is within 60 miles of Westville, Indiana and you would be willing to allow them to collect a sample sometime between 05-01-2016 and 07-31-2016, please call or email Dr. Gielda at (773) 655-6217 or lgielda@pnw.edu.
