Note from Barbara
Hello all,

Those of you who have been lucky enough to get rain should be on the lookout for stem rot. While we don’t understand this disease very well, it is thought that outbreaks usually occur when a rain follows hot dry weather.

I am doing a trial at Lewiston this year to try to get a better handle on optimal timing for stem rot control. As mentioned above, we don’t have a very good handle on conditions that favor epidemics. I’d very much appreciate it if you would pass on any reports or observations of stem rot. It would be great if you could give me an address or gps location so that I can relate it to the nearest weather station.

I’d like to do some follow-up field visits for stem rot. Unfortunately, I will not be able to do that immediately since I’ll be out Aug 3-11 [at the annual APS meeting.] Don’t hesitate to drop me a line about this or anything else that comes up. My replies may be slow since my time will be 6 hours EARLIER than yours. Expect advisories to show up between noon and 2 p.m.
