LSU AgCenter/Rodrigo Diaz
This roseau cane is being studied by LSU AgCenter entomologist Rodrigo Diaz and a team of federal and state scientists to determine what is causing the die-off. Diaz is subjecting these plants to a number of stresses like flooding, pathogens and variations in nutrients to look for causes.
Roseau cane continues to die off at the mouth of the Mississippi River with no known cause. But LSU AgCenter scientists are studying multiple possibilities.
