Are aster yellows infecting your plants?Upon walking into your garden, you notice many varieties of your plants appear to have lost color and are beginning to grow in bizarre shapes. You notice a reduction in the yield and quality of your vegetables, and many plants appear to be stunted. There appears to be no rhyme or reason to the unusual qualities of the plants, and it isn’t just affecting one species; it is affecting them all. What you have is an outbreak of aster yellows.
