Blackberry Virus Project
NC State University is part of a multi-state team that is trying to identify and control viruses that are a concern to blackberry growers in the region. The symptoms can be wide ranging. Some plants have smaller distorted leaves like the leaves in the photo above. While others have leaf discoloration, fruit distortion or a combination of these traits.
This project is headed up by researchers at the University of Arkansas. For more information see http://arkansasagnews.uark.edu/4800.htm. Photo: Gina Fernandez.
