New findings in ash dieback research by Teagasc


Ash dieback is an invasive disease that is causing great damage to ash trees in Ireland and is likely to continue doing so in the following decades. Dr Miguel Nemesio-Gorriz, Research Officer, Teagasc Forestry discusses the findings of three studies carried out by Teagasc since 2017.

Together with research on management practices to mitigate the effect of ash dieback, Teagasc has a line of research with a focus on ash trees with the objective to understand better the disease, to find natural resistance and to use it to run a breeding program. This presentation by Dr Miguel Nemesio-Gorriz in November 2020 discusses the findings of three studies carried out by Teagasc since 2017.
