Detail
Rose Rosette Disease (RRD) is a virus that is vectored by an eriophyid mite (Phyllocoptes fructiphylus) and often leads to the eventual death of infected plants. Multiflora Rose (Rosa multiflora) is particularly susceptible to RRD and it's decades long march, as an invasive plant, across much of the continental U.S. has likely been the source of inoculum and responsible for spreading the disease. The industry, along with university and federal scientists, is working to develop methods to control, suppress, and eradicate the pathogen. This webinar shares some historical perspective on RRD, describes some recent findings, and begins to identify a path forward.
