The main aim of this project is to test a bacterial detection technique developed in Austria that consists of quantifying inoculum carried by bees.
The objective is to estimate our ability to predict fire blight based on bacterial populations on bees. The project also involves testing the efficacy of post-infection bactericides and evaluating blossom thinning as a method of controlling fire blight.
