Managing Rose Rosette Disease in the Landscape: A Star Roses and Plants webinar

Rose Rosette Disease (RRD) has been making an unwelcome appearance in landscapes across the United States. A virus carried by an eriophyid mite, this disease can affect all cultivated roses, including shrubs, hybrid teas, floribunda, grandifloras, and miniatures. Researchers and breeders are hard at work developing solutions to combat RRD. In the meantime, there are many steps landscapers can take to help prevent its spread.

You will learn:

  • How to identify and confirm RRD 
  • Best Management Practices for preventing RRD
  • Treatment recommendations tailored for the landscape industry
