Nice Article on Leak Rots for Progressive Crop Consultant

Sep 27, 2019

My colleague Steve Koike over at Trical Diagnostics and I wrote a really good article on leak rots caused by Mucor and Rhizopus for the last edition of Progressive Crop Consultant.  The impetus for writing the article, as you will see when you read it, is that even though these pathogens cause a great deal of fruit loss in the berries, almost no work has been done on them by researchers.   Well, get ready to hear more as we endeavor to mitigate this issue together.

The article is an overview of the pathogens, their biology, epidemilogy and lastly what (meager) tools we currently have in the way of management.

It's a good read for the weekend - enjoy!
