Meeting Announcement from MANTS

Boxwood Blight Presentation and Roundtable

In response to recent concerns about boxwood blight, MANTS will be holding a Boxwood Blight Presentation and Roundtable Discussion on Tuesday, January 10th at 5:00 pm, at the Baltimore Convention Center. If you wish to attend, please RSVP to MANTS at mantsinc@aol.com. A meeting room will be assigned based on the number of attendees.

Nurseries in Connecticut, Virginia, and North Carolina have had container and/or field product quarantined. Based on lab research, most cultivars tested showed various degrees of susceptibility to the pathogen. Buxus Suffruticosa may be the most susceptible cultivar and Buxus sempervirens is also susceptible. At present, there are no known chemicals to control it. Join Chuan Hong of the Hampton Roads Research Station and Kelly Ivors of NCSU, state and local nursery professionals and representatives from BASF and Syngenta at this meeting.
