In this Aug. 4, 2011 photo, farmer Ryan Richardson, owner of County Line Orchard, displays examples of apples and leaves from McIntosh apple trees on his farm that have been affected by apple scab fungus, in Hobart, Ind. Research from Purdue University shows Michigan and Indiana apple crops are being bothered by apple scab fungus, because fungicides that are quite important to apple growers are failing. The fungus is becoming resistant, and it could mean some serious problems for orchard operators. (AP Photo/M. Spencer Green) less
