Evaluating damage resulting from volcano mulching

2010 | Gary Watson, Morton Arboretum
The purpose of this research project is to determine if volcano mulch creates conditions conducive to stem rot, canker disease, or root problems. Identifying the causal organisms and the environments that are necessary for disease development will aid in understanding the epidemiology and lead to disease prevention.
