Orchard Commodity Survey
An Orchard Commodity Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey was conducted for exotic insects and diseases including light brown apple moth (LBM), cherry bark tortrix (CBT), and apple proliferation phytoplasma (APP). Because of the potential spread of streptomycin-resistant fire blight in NY following its discovery in 2011, we also monitored for this disease. All the agricultural pests in the survey pose significant threats to NY fruit industries.
