Botryosphaeria Canker and Dieback of Trees

450-726 (SPES-23P) Most trees and shrubs are susceptible to dieback and cankers caused by several species of the fungal genus Botryosphaeria. Botryosphaeria fungi are typically opportunistic pathogens. Opportunistic pathogens only cause disease on plants that are stressed. Therefore, avoiding plant stress, which predisposes plant tissue to infection and colonization by this fungal group, is the best strategy to prevent Botryosphaeria disease problems. 8.5" x 11", 6 pages,andnbsp;DS, color pages 1, 2, 3, 24#, single staple upper left
