fire blight

Dear Southeastern Apple Growers:

A U.S. research team including plant pathologists, horticulturalists, and economists has been formed to address and improve fire blight disease management. We wish to apply for a USDA Specialty Crops Research Initiative proposal tackling stakeholder-driven applied objectives to develop region-specific optimal and sustainable best management options for blossom blight and shoot blight, to understand the economic impacts of these practices, and to deliver new information to growers in a timely manner.

The team consists of:

  • Dr. George Sundin, Michigan State University
  • Dr. Jim Adaskaveg, University of California-Riverside
  • Dr. Awais Khan, Cornell University
  • Dr. Kerik Cox, Cornell University
  • Dr. Karina Gallardo, Washington State University
  • Tianna DuPont, Washington State Extension
  • Dr. Tom Kon, North Carolina State University
  • Dr. Sara Villani, North Carolina State University

We request that you please answer a short survey asking for information about fire blight on your farm and your current management practices. The survey is anonymous to answer it:

Thank you very much for your assistance!
