Pierce's Disease

Pierce’s disease is a bacterial disease carried by leafhoppers from plant to plant. Best known as a severely debilitating disease of grapes, Pierce’s disease can also infect other crops such as citrus and almonds, and many species of ornamental plants in parks and gardens.

  • Progress reports due April 14, 2006
  • Funding notification to PIs June 2006
