Recently, numerous Phytophthora (pronounced Fie-TOF-ther-uh) plant pathogens have been detected in California native plant nurseries and habitat restoration sites. One of the most recognizeable species is one that causes sudden oak death, Phytophthora ramorum. Nurseries can be high risk sites for the spread of Phytophthora, potentially resulting in outbreaks of root diseases in natural ecosystems. Hedgerow Farms has a set of Best Management Practices created by the California Department of Agriculture in place to prevent spreading these pathogens.
