New Dry Pea Research Studies to be Conducted in 2016 May 20, 2016
Based on the increase in dry pea acreage throughout western Nebraska, UNL conducted a comprehensive disease survey in 2015 to identify the most prevalent and important disease issues in Nebraska production. The primary problem consistently observed across the region was a bacterial blight complex caused by two distinct, but closely related pathogens: Pseudomonas syringae pv. pisi (Psp) and Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae (Pss).
