2006 Survey Results

After six consecutive years of survey, PPV was found for the first time in New York in 2006.  A total of 86,431 samples from commercial orchards were collected and tested that year.  PPV was confirmed at two sites in Niagara County.  The first site was in a plum orchard close to the Niagara River, near Porter, NY, at a 5-mile distance from the initial Canadian infestation sites.  Two trees tested positive for the virus at the end of June; they were right next to each other.  The second site was located in a peach orchard near Olcott, NY, approximately 11 miles to the east of the first site.  One tree tested positive for PPV in July.
