Why some elms win the battle against DED
Date & Time: April 20th, 10:00 - 11:00 am
Location: Lake Nokomis Community Center
- 2401 E Minnehaha Parkway Minneapolis, MN 55417
Most American elms easily succumb to DED. However, cultivars are available that show increased resistance to the disease. Learn about mechanisms resistant elms utilize to limit the spread of infection and minimize the effects of DED. Implications for management will be discussed.
