In anticipation of the damage to my agricultural operation from hurricane Irma we will not be shipping any parts for until further notice.
I have an avocado grove in Homestead Florida. Laurel Wilt disease arrived about 3 years ago to our area. As a grower I got very involved researching ways to save my trees. The basic response to Laurel wilt is to remove infected trees and inject propiconazole in to the trees as a prevention or as a reaction to infestation in a grove. There are good arguments for being proactive, before you get an episode, and there are good arguments for being reactive. I'm in the reactive mode at the moment. What we know today is that the option of doing nothing is a poor one. The picture on the left shows a grove in which nothing was done. The decease moves quickly via beetle boring of the wood and also via root graft transmission. During the wet and hot summer this root transmission occurs very fast.
