Orchard Commodity Survey – 2016
An Orchard Commodity Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey was conducted for exotic insects and diseases including cherry bark tortrix (CBT), summer fruit tortrix moth (SFT), light brown apple moth (LBM), variegated golden tortrix (VGT), spotted lanternfly and apple proliferation phytoplasma (APP). In addition, we surveyed three orchards for latent apple viruses, which may be associated with tree decline. All the agricultural pests in the survey pose significant threats to NY fruit industries.
