We as researchers think the preventative practices for trunk diseases are effective. We surveyed growers to see if they feel the same.
Link to presentation:Trunk Disease Management, grower usage and perspective of preventative practices.
-Possible pathogen detection tools for growers.
-Evaluate and improve culture and molecular detection methods.
-Promote preventative practices to minimize pruning wound infections.
-Develop prediction models to improve decision making processes for pruning times and possible treatments.
