Six ornamental production nurseries in Georgia were surveyed
for Phytophthora ramorum in 2003. No P. ramorum was detected
in 946 plant samples (508 nursery and 438 nursery perimeter/forest). Other
Phytophthora species, mostly P. cinnamomi and P.
parasitica, were recovered from Rhododendron and Pieris
leaves from 50 nursery and 2 perimeter samples.
