Julius Gotthelf Kühn (1825–1910) was a German academic and agronomist and he is one of the founders of Plant Pathology. Kuhn's father was a land owner and he gained experience in agriculture and botany on his father's land. He was trained in Bonn, starting at age 30 and was awarded his doctorate, which focused on diseases of beet and canola at Leipzig. In 1862, he became a professor of agriculture at the University of Halle. Kuhn published more than 70 papers on mycology and plant pathology over the course of his career.
One of his seminar papers was the 1858 publication "Die Krankheiten der Kultergewachse".
