New Document on RRD from Virginia Cooperative Extension

This publication by Chuan Hong, Mary Ann Hansen, and Eric Day and from Virginia Cooperative Extension, Virginia Tech, and Virginia State University was posted to the web on September 17, 2012. It appears to be very detailed and includes multiple clear color photographs of roses exhibiting symptoms of Rose Rosette Disease as well as examples of herbicide damage for comparison. The article covers disease history, symptoms, disease cycle (with info on the recent identification of the virus believed to be the cause along with the likelihood of developing rapid diagnostic tests), resistance, cultural and chemical control, and a bibliography (Ann Peck's web publication is cited).

And the link below for the pdf download for the document itself.
