Berry growers - maybe you have noticed anthracnose on your berries, maybe you have not - either way, please take a few minutes to complete this survey to help inform research on this group of fruit diseases.

Anthracnose diseases of blueberries and strawberries are pertinent to Minnesota, but our state may be behind the curve on management. Anthracnose also causes bitter rot in apples. This survey aims to help us understand the role of anthracnose (fruit rot) diseases and to prioritize the concerns and challenges that fruit growers have around these diseases so that improved management recommendations and communication can be developed.   

Anthracnose diseases may go by many names, but many of them are caused by the same fungal pathogens (Colletotrichum spp.).

This survey was developed by fruit specialists in multiple states, and led by Dr. Srdjan Acimovic from Cornell University Extension. All responses are anonymous. No personal information will be collected.

We thank you for taking your time to help us set research goals for 2021 and 2022.
