This past week, USDA's laboratory in Beltsville, MD, confirmed the 
first presence of plum pox virus in New York. The state's Department of 
Agriculture and Markets detected positive results on plum tree leaf 
samples from an orchard in Niagara County, 5 miles from plum pox 
eradication zones in Canada. Survey specialists are currently surveying 
a 5-mile radius of the area, and will likely establish an eradication 
program that could include quarantines and removal of infested 
orchards.
