New publications during the past year include a Scaffolds article on herbicide management and a Fruit Quarterly article on rapid apple decline. Causes of rapid apple decline are complex and difficult to decipher. The articles can be accessed via the links above. Note that links indicated in these PDF files (e.g., in literature cited) will not work unless they are cut and pasted into your browser and then they still will not work until one eliminates from the pasted URL all of the spurious characters, word-breaking hyphens, and extra spaces that result from line breaks in the PDF files as they were printed in these documents. Sorry about that complication in accessing links.
