Acknowledgements

The information in this handbook has been compiled from many sources. We sincerely appreciate the time and effort that everyone spent preparing and reviewing this material. Many of the past authors and contributors have been identified in the 2004 PNW Plant Disease Management Handbook, our 50th edition. Our attempt in this section is to identify all individuals who worked on the 2018 version of the handbook whether their effort was great or small. Those acknowledged as authors or contributors have written completely new sections or conducted major rewrites of existing sections. Reviewers helped read through and verify the existing information.

Special thanks go to Erik Ackerson for his skill in copyediting and desktop publishing and to publishing manager Phillip Brown, who keeps all the books moving along toward publication.

A personal acknowledgment from Jay to his family: Jacob, keep up the good work at WOU. The eclipse was awesome! Lucas, keep up the good work at LBCC. I will always love you both. To my wife Kim, your support is invaluable for getting this book finished every year, many thanks. Ian, glad you have the closer internship you want, full steam ahead for the Masters. Erin, glad you have been so successful getting the jobs you want! Love you all! And thanks to all my family, friends and colleagues for helping me get through colon cancer surgery.
– J. W. Pscheidt
