   That Pomona fireblight article says, "The best spray to use so far is
Streptomycin, if you can find it.  As far as I've been able to discover,
only big fruit growers can access Streptomycin."
   Surprise!
   Miller Nurseries has it in their catalog and one doesn't need to be a big
fruit grower to buy it.  It is a bit pricey though, costing $14.65 for a 2
oz. bottle.  There is one thing that appears rather odd about Miller's
Streptomycin though; Miller Nurseries is located in Canandaigua, New York
and their catalog says that they cannot ship Streptomycin to New York.
