Disease-Resistant Apple Cultivars
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Disease infection is a major limitation to growing apples in Missouri. Several cultivars with apple scab immunity or resistance are currently available for planting. Although these cultivars can reduce pesticide usage, apples are susceptible to other diseases and insect pests. All the cultivars listed here are immune or resistant to apple scab. Because temperatures often reach 100 degrees F in August, early-ripening disease-resistant cultivars are excluded. Also, some cultivars have not yet been evaluated in Missouri and may have unidentified limitations to fruit production. This publication provides information on desease-resistant apple cultivars as well as common disease symptoms.
