This report details the findings of a project to connect horticultural and pathological data to a geographical mapping system.
The project gathered and analyzed data from growers for three key disease areas for the Okanagan tree fruit industry.
The study looked at:
- General fruit rot of stone fruits
- Tree cankers
- Soil pathogens
The purpose was to determine the uniformity, stability and potential shifts that might result from natural variability within pathogen populations initiated by climate change.
