Orchard Commodity Survey

Grants and Contracts Details


This survey will allow us to target 6 pests of concern to the apple industry. This survey program will pinpoint potential problems so they may be quickly eradicated before they become infestations that require the expenditure of large amounts of time and money to eradicate. The establishment of any of these pests would have large negative impacts on the state’s growing apple industry. The Cooperator seeks to conduct a program which is expected to result in: • The safeguarding of Kentucky’s apple industry against 6 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.
