New York CAPS Orchard Commodity Survey Targets 2015 Summary/Final Report
An Orchard Commodity Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey was conducted for exotic insects and diseases including light brown apple moth (LBM), cherry bark tortrix (CBT), summer fruit tortrix moth (SFT), variegated golden tortrix (VGT) 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.
