Overview of Plant Disease Diagnoses for 2013

99 samples were received from Lane county in 2013, 50% of which were blueberry samples from growers mostly with concerns about Phytophthora root rot. Thankfully we found Phytophthora in only a few of those. We did diagnose  Pestalotiopsis assocated with stem cankers and dieback, and Blueberry Shock Ilarvirus. Phytophthora root rot was also found in nursery rhododendrons.
