Comandra Blister Rust on Young Loblolly Pine in Eastern Tennessee
Abstract:A survey in May 1967 revealed comandra blister rust, Cronartium comandrae Pk., in four adjacent counties on the Cumberland Plateau in eastern Tennessee. Forty percent of the sampled loblolly pine plantations ten years old and younger had infected trees. Incidence of infected pines was 6 percent, one third of which were dead. Comandra rust poses an immediate and serious threat to young loblolly pine plantations in localized areas in eastern Tennessee.
