Screening Larch for Resistance to Mycosphaerella Needlecast Disease
Abstract:Intensive management of larch in the north central and northeastern United States is receiving considerable interest because of the rapid growth of European and Japanese larch and the hybrids between these two species. A needlecast disease caused by the fungus Mycosphaerella laricina has the potential to reduce tree growth and kill highly susceptible trees. Research in Wisconsin and Iowa using six larch species and hybrids has provided data showing the importance of seed source selection in minimizing damage caused by this disease. North. J. Appl. For. 6:172-174, December 1989.
