Abstract: Vegetable MD Online web page was expanded during 2001 to serve as a valuable resource for the identification and management of diseases of vegetable crops occurring in New York and in the Northeast. The site has received attention by extension specialists, growers, and homeowners in New York and literally throughout the world. Numerous requests were received to use material and photographs used throughout the site. The site has added over 100 new images, has been listed by several web search engines, and has been added to several University sites as a major resource.
