Orchard Commodity Survey – 2017
An Orchard Commodity Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey was conducted for exotic insects and diseases including cherry bark tortrix (CBT), variegated golden tortrix (VGT), European cherry fruit fly (ECFF), spotted lanternfly and apple proliferation phytoplasma (APP). All the agricultural pests in the survey pose significant threats to NY fruit industries. In addition, under this project Carroll assisted Marc Fuchs, Plant Pathology and Plant-Microbe Biology, by collecting samples from three orchards to test for latent apple viruses, which may be associated with tree decline. This effort was part of a larger project and detailed results are not included here.
