Technical Abstract: A no spray rose trial has been conducted at the West Tennessee Research and Education Center in Jackson, TN, since 2006. In 2007, sites were added at the Plateau Research and Education Center in Crossville, TN, and the Thad Cochran Southern Horticultural Laboratory in Poplarville, MS. A total of 136 cultivars were evaluated in at least two of the three test locations. Roses with superior resistance (<2% foliage infected) to black spot and Cercospora leaf spot were considered no-spray roses.
