This project involved an exhaustive survey of viruses, phytoplasma, fungi, and nematodes in nurseries and strawberry fields to determine the exact causes of strawberry decline disease in Québec. Information on cropping systems and control methods used by strawberry plant and fruit producers was compiled in a database. The project also provided fast and effective diagnostic services.
From 2014 to 2017
