Finally, a mug shot for a crop-killing NH pest
Date:7/2/2014

r, one of the best ways to manage the damaging leafhoppers is to get rid of chokecherry. Entomologist Alan Eaton, UNH Cooperative Extension professor, has partnered with Chandler to publish a pest fact sheet on how to identify chokecherry and provide more information about the three leafhoppers that carry X-disease: http://extension.unh.edu/resources/files/Resource001720_Rep2400.pdf.

Eaton recommends farmers mow regularly, get rid of red clover, mulch under trees or use herbicide strips to reduce the habitat of the invasive leafhoppers. Unlike Aster yellows, which is carried to the Granite State by leafhoppers migrating up from the southern states, Eaton says X-disease is very predictable.

"There is more potential here for incidences of X-disease outbreaks because we have more people growing peaches and cherries. However, if the management techniques are appropriate, farmers don't need to worry about identifying the species of leafhopper," Eaton says.

Founded in 1887, the NH Agricultural Experiment Station at the UNH College of Life Sciences and Agriculture is UNH's original research center and an elemental component of New Hampshire's land-grant university heritage and mission, since before UNH was located in Durham. We steward federal and state funding to provide unbiased and objective research concerning diverse aspects of sustainable agriculture and foods, aquaculture, forest management, and related wildlife, natural resources and rural community topics. We maintain the Woodman and Kingman agronomy and horticultural farms, the Macfarlane Greenhouses, the Fairchild Dairy Teaching and Research Center, and the Organic Dairy Research Farm. Additional properties also provide forage, forests and woodlands in direct support to research, teaching, and outreach.
