Research

Apple scab is the most important disease of apples in the cool temperate regions where apples are grown. Data were collected over several years from plantings of new apple cultivars and selections established at multiple locations in 1995 and 1999 as part of regional project NE-183. Golden Delicious and McIntosh were the standards in both plantings. Data on incidence of scab on leaves and fruit were collected and analyzed to determine differences due to location and cultivar.
