Dr. Mark Windham, Professor, University of Tennessee Knoxville (Department of entomology and Plant Pathology), will discuss his research into Rose Rosette Disease (RRD) and other projects, such as identifying disease resistant varieties and mechanisms of roses. His interests include how plant resistant mechanisms interact with environmental and water stresses.


The American Rose Society Research Endowment Trust has selected Dr. Windham to head a three-year study beginning in 2012 concerning the management of RRD. The objectives are to determine 1) how rosarians can manage RRD in their gardens, and 2) what best management practices for RRD can be developed, other than eliminating bushes with symptoms. The Trustees have identified Rose Rosette Disease as the greatest threat to the future of commercial and recreational growth and enjoyment of roses.
