Phytophthora ramorum Survey

Grants and Contracts Details


Kentucky has been identified as a high risk area for Sudden Oak Death (SOD), Phytophthora ramorum, because of the extensive oak forests within the state. This disease could have a severe effect on an economy that depends on the revenue generated from the sale of logs and wood products. Detections in nurseries that ship widely throughout the United States have increased concerns that this disease could appear in other U.S. nurseries and hence move to susceptible species in the surrounding environment. In fact, several southeastern states have detected Phytophthora ramorum during the course of nursery surveys for the disease.
