Best Management Practices

When an outbreak of a disease has been identified, and due to extenuating factors it cannot be eradicated, it is important to implement strategies that minimize the effects related to the disease. This page is dedicated to mitigating strategies, called Best Management Practices (BMP’s), that may help minimize the abundance, spread, and negative impacts of the microbes responsible for plant diseases in large populations such nurseries or restoration efforts. BMP’s are based on scientific data, as well as on an intimate knowledge of the epidemiology of plant diseases. The purpose behind BMP’s is to minimize plant disease levels through a proportional and cost effective response for commercial and large scale projects that can scale effectively depending on the nature and scope of an outbreak.
