Rose rosette is a serious virus disease of roses. It is spread primarily by a microscopic mite. Successful management of rose rosette disease (RRD) involves early detection of symptoms.
Alan Windham, Professor and University of Tennessee Extension Specialist, Mark Windham, Distinguished Professor, and Frank Hale, Professor and UT Extension Specialist have released a new Guide to Early Detection of Rose Rosette (pdf).
You can hear Dr. Mark Windham talk about the IT glitch which caused funding for rose rosette research not to be allocated, get an update on the current state of the research, and the research that is in peril on the July 5, 2019, RoseChat podcast.
