Plant Health Progress Editor's Pick

   

Sudden oak death has had tremendous impact in forests and nurseries on the West coast. In this month's Editor's Pick, Norman Dart and Gary Chastagner used USDA-APHIS Emergency Action Notifications to trace the dollar loss of ornamental plants in retail nurseries in Washington State. The average loss was over $13,000 per nursery for plant material over a 2-year period but hidden costs for required mitigation efforts added to the total loss. 
 

PMN Adds Proceedings Link
     
Plant Management Network has now published seven proceedings from various symposia and meetings. To locate them, see "Proceedings" under the Resources tab on the PMN homepage. Proceedings may be published either as a collection of materials (posters, PowerPoint presentations, etc.) from the event, like the 2007 National Plant Diagnostic Network Meeting, or written and published within a peer-reviewed journal, as were papers from the Organic Agriculture Symposium.
