Hi Henry,

It was a very good meeting. There are plans on developing more promotional materials that can be distributed via the website and other outlets that would highlight the goals of NCPN-R and the resources in place and on the horizon. There are advances being made in diagnostic techniques, especially for some of the newer viruses, that can be uniform and adopted by plant disease clinics far and wide. There are efforts to continue to clean up more rose varieties, continue to develop and expand the new clean plant block at FPS, and encourage more rose producers and breeders to participate.

There were a lot of great discussions with all the key stakeholders represented (scientists studying topics that relate to the mission, USDA NCPN representatives, breeders, propagators, landscapers, public garden reps, etc.). There is not a proceedings with abstracts or written papers. The presentations were well done with good background information and updates on ongoing research. A goal throughout was to stimulate discussion for where to focus our efforts with the limited resources.

Please look to the website for updates as time goes by. You can also look at the Foundation Plant Services website for additional roses being added to the collection as they pass the tests and are included in the clean stock block and become available.

It is a very valuable program that will especially help maintain and expand the clean stock block at UC-Davis, expand what is tested for to be up to date with more newly identified problematic viruses in particular, and encourage and help industry to take advantage of this valuable resource to help keep the rose industry viable.

Thank you Dave. Needless to say, I am disappointed to hear that not even the abstracts will be available.

This publication appears to overlap and/or supplement some of what the Clean Plant group are doing (but with other plants):

Does anyone know if the Power Points have been posted yet? And, if so, what is/are the link(s) to view them?
Thank you.

This is the latest general information about the program that I could find:
