    MSU Plant & Pest Diagnostics provides testing for hop viruses and viroids

    Laura Miles and Jan Byrne, MSU Plant & Pest Diagnostics; Carolyn Malmstrom, Kota Nakasato and Ellen Cole, MSU Department of Plant Biology; Rob Sirrine and Erin Lizotte, Michigan State University Extension - June 29, 2021

    Hops are known to host several viruses and viroids that potentially impact profitability by reducing yield, quality and/or plant longevity. Several of these pathogens are widespread in Michigan and mixed infections of multiple viruses and viroids in a single plant are frequently found. The perennial nature of hop and common methods of propagation contribute to the the accumulation of these pathogens over time.

    Viruses detected in Michigan wheat

    June 21 | Jan Byrne and Martin Chilvers

    The Michigan State University Plant & Pest Diagnostics lab receives samples from Michigan wheat growers. Samples that are symptomatic are tested for several viruses; this work is supported by funding from the Michigan Wheat Program. Viral symptoms in wheat can include yellowing or purpling, flecking on the foliage, and stunting. Two different wheat viruses, wheat streak mosaic and wheat spindle streak, were confirmed in samples received this growing season. While the names are similar, there are significant differences in the biology of these two wheat viruses.

    Will my turf recover from recent flooding?

    Kevin FrankMichigan State University Extension, Department of Plant, Soil and Microbial Sciences - July 1, 2021

    Recent rainfall events caused flooding on golf courses, lawns and other turf areas. Depending on how long the turf was submerged and whether soil deposition occurred will determine whether turf survives.

    Heavy rain across many portions of Michigan in the last week dropped over 5 inches locally. Turf near streams and rivers and low-lying areas was under feet of water at least temporarily. Unlike flooding during the spring, damage to turf during the summer can be significant. Factors that determine turf survival under water include turfgrass species, submergence duration, submergence depth, water temperature and light intensity.

    Drive-by botany: Poison hemlock and perennial pea

    Jeremy Jubenville and Isabel Branstrom, Michigan State University Extension - July 6, 2021

    Has a patch of flowers ever caught your eye as you travelled down the road? It certainly happens to us all the time! As gardeners and naturalists, we're always interested increasing functional diversity in our gardens and landscapes, so we thought it would be fun to consider some of the roadside plants that we see every day. Each article in this series will feature two plant species that are currently blooming and frequently observed from the road. Our goal is to answer two simple questions:

    What are they?

    Would they make good garden plants?

    Five Proven Methods to Improve Moisture Uniformity

    July 02, 2021

    Brian Whitlark, senior consulting agronomist, West Region

    Distribution uniformity is the standard measure for irrigation system efficiency, but focusing on soil moisture uniformity is more impactful for superintendents that want firm conditions, healthy turf and efficient water use. Optimizing moisture uniformity requires a combination of irrigation techniques and cultural practices that help water penetrate the soil. The strategies detailed in this article are working well in extremely challenging irrigation settings, so they can almost certainly help improve moisture uniformity at your course.

    The Ins and Outs of Managing Poa Annua Putting Greens

    By Zach Nicoludis, agronomist, Central Region

    Although Poa annua putting greens sometimes face criticism, this grass can provide excellent conditions and is the preferred putting surface at some of the most famous courses in the country. There are also many courses where Poa annua greens are the reality regardless of superintendent or golfer preferences. Whatever the case may be, knowing the strengths and weaknesses of this grass is necessary for successful management. As is an in-depth understanding of the agronomics needed to optimize turf health and playing conditions.

    The Michigan Turfgrass Foundation Welcomes Paul Kuhna to Board of Directors

    Paul Kuhna

    Head Groundskeeper - Lansing Lugnuts (Oakland Athletics High A Affiliate)

    Representing:  Sports or Institutional Turf

    Home town: Grosse Pointe, Michigan

    How did you get interested in turf?

      “My parents had season tickets to the Detroit Tigers, so I went to about 20 or 30 games a season growing up.  So I really just like being at the ballpark a lot, being around the field, running the bases after games, when I was a little kid I thought that was awesome.  

    What made you decide to attend Michigan State University?

      “Michigan State has a great turf program, but I would have gone there for anything.  My dad went there, uncles went there, I grew up a Spartan fan my whole life.  I grew up going to games there, baseball, football, basketball.  There was no other school I was looking to go to.

    How did you end up with the Lansing Lugnuts?  

      “I started an internship with the Detroit Tigers my junior year. I actually had to miss a semester of college, because the internship went from March all the way through November, so I had to take an extra semester to do that.  That helped me be able to start here with the Lugnuts the following spring as the Assistant Greenskeeper in 2017.  I really like being in Lansing, so when the Head Groundskeeper job opened up, I applied and was excited to get the job and be able to come back here!  

    What are your thoughts on being a board member with the Michigan Turfgrass Foundation?

    “I’m really excited to be a part of it.  While attending Michigan State I learned about the foundation, but to be a part of it, I’m really excited.  I’m excited to learn from some great colleagues in all parts of the industry.

    CONSUMER ADVISORY: Invasive box tree moth detected in Michigan nurseries, greenhouses

    MDARD, USDA taking immediate action to safeguard against invasive pest

    LANSING, MI - The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has identified box tree moth (Cydalima perspectalis) in nurseries and greenhouses in the United States, including Michigan. This is the first detection of this invasive species in the nation. Box tree moth is not considered a forest pest because boxwood is not native to Michigan forests. However, if left unchecked, it could cause significant defoliation and death of boxwood in the landscape.

    The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) is advising anyone, including landscapers, who purchased boxwood plants within the last two months to inspect their plants very closely for the invasive pest. Signs of infestation include silky webbing and possibly caterpillars located deep inside of the plants.

    Box tree moth caterpillars are green and yellow with white, yellow, and black stripes and black spots. The caterpillars feed only on boxwoods making them easy to spot. Adult box tree moth has two color forms. The most common form has white wings with dark brown borders, while the dark form has solid brown wings with a white streak or spot on each forewing. Both forms have a distinctive white dot or mark in the middle of each forewing.

    “Boxwoods are commonly planted in North America as ornamentals with the largest plantings occurring in urban areas. In 2014, boxwood made up 15 percent of broadleaf evergreen sales in the United States with an estimated value of $126 million,” said Robin Rosenbaum, Plant Health Section Manager of MDARD’s Pesticide and Plant Pest Management Division. “Ensuring this pest is quickly contained is crucial to protecting the state’s boxwood.”

    To further prevent the introduction of box tree moth into the United States, USDA APHIS issued a Federal Order on May 26, 2021, prohibiting importation of all boxwood (Buxus spp.), euonymus (Euonymus spp.), and holly (Ilex spp.) plants for planting from Canada.

    If you see signs of box tree moth on your boxwood plants, please contact MDARD’s nursery program at MDARD-NurseryCE@michigan.gov with your contact information, photos, and when and where you purchased the plant. You may also contact Michigan State University Diagnostic Services at pestid@msu.edu.

    Visit the Michigan Invasive Species website to find photos and information about invasive plant pests in Michigan and contact information to report pests in your community. For more information on MDARD’s Pesticide and Plant Pesticide Management Division, visit Michigan.gov/MDARD.

    If you planted boxwood shrubs this spring, check them for box tree moth

    By David Smitley

    Box tree moth, Cydalima perspectalis, is a destructive pest of ornamental boxwoods (Buxus spp.) in Europe, where it was introduced from Asia. It was first discovered in North America in Toronto, Canada, in fall of 2018. It has not been previously found in the United States. Unfortunately, a few infested shrubs may have been sent to Michigan nurseries during spring 2021, despite being inspected and confirmed as free of boxwood tree moth by the source.

    Help me save my blue spruce

    ByJan Byrne, Bert Cregg, Jill O'Donnell and Monique Sakalidis

There are also countless phone calls and emails made to the lab, Michigan State University Extension educators and specialists. The reality is not all ailing spruce trees can, or should, be saved. In most cases, there is no silver bullet to cure the affected tree.

    Is your water garden having a RIPPLE effect on Michigan's waterways?

    By Paige Filice 

    Wildlife sightings, soothing sounds and scenic beauty are a few benefits of backyard water gardens. While exotic fish such as koi can be attractive and friendly additions, and non-native ornamental plants such as water hyacinth add vibrant color to your yard all summer long, neither are native to Michigan. If they are let loose into our lakes and streams, they can have long-lasting, detrimental impacts.
