USDA Finds Yoder Facilities Free from CWR

October 19, 2007 - 10:00

In two separate inspections of Yoder Brothers' facilities in Alva and Parrish, Fla., in early October, the United States Department of Agriculture determined that both facilities were clean of Chrysanthemum White Rust (CWR), according to a Yoder press release.

The company stated in a press release that ongoing details regarding Yoder varieties and recent CWR outbreaks in the Northeast would be forthcoming. The inspection has verified that the outbreak did not originate in Yoder stock but was most likely caused by exposure to diseased cut chrysanthemums from overseas that were shipped to nearby locations of affected facilities.
