Orchard Commodity Survey

Grants and Contracts Details


This survey will allow us to target 6 moth pests of concern to the orchard industry, spotted lanternfly, and one fruit fly pest if appropriate hosts are found in or near the 10-11 orchards included in the survey. The establishment of any of these pests would have large negative impacts on the state’s valuable orchard industry. The Cooperator seeks to conduct a program which is expected to result in: ? The safeguarding of Kentucky's orchard industry against 7-8 insect pests. ? Providing survey data about these pests in Kentucky. ? Early detection and rapid response if these pests are found in the state. ? Keeping these pests from becoming established in Kentucky. ? The entry of positive/negative data into the NAPIS database
