Thomas Bannon's curator insight, April 11, 9:42 AM
Here is something interesting: say you are a farmer, and over the course of a few years your plants start dying. You have done test for the usual suspects such as fungi, insects, bacteria and so on. But nothing to avail. This is now happening to apple trees across America. It starts with a single limb of the tree and then moves onto the entire tree, slowing killing the plant. Why is this happening you ask? No one knows. Test have been done and nothing has come from it. It is a great mystery right now and little progress has been made. It has grabbed the attention from many farmers but is still not at the level of great concern. But it continues to progress and still no solution. It is hard to imagine an America without apple trees. Its hard to imagine a fall with your family in flannel shirts and jeans but no orchards to go to. It might seem impossible, however, its something that just might happen.
