Ribes Eradication Effectively Controls White Pine Blister Rust
Practical control of white pine blister rust has been under way in the Northeastern States since 1918 and in the other white pine regions of the United States for a shorter period. The beneficial results of this work are now noticeable over extensive areas. Studies show that on protected areas the eradication of currant and gooseberry bushes effectively checks the disease on white pines, while on unprotected areas, where such bushes remain undisturbed, the rust continues to increase on the trees from year to year.
