Abstract Not Available – First paragraph follows:
Principle control measures for BF include standardization of nursery stock for low BF potential in susceptible varieties like Nonpareil or selection of varieties with no BF potential. Avoidance of susceptible varieties in localities with prolonged high summer temperature may be required, as better information on relative susceptibility is obtained.
