Evaluating the Impact of Spray Volume and Pruning on Effectiveness of the Sooty Blotch/flyspeck Warning System

Authors: ,

Abstract

A sooty blotch flyspeck (SBFS) warning system, developed in North Carolina and modified in Kentucky, extends the period between first-cover and second-cover fungicide sprays until a total of 175 hours of wetness has been measured in the orchard canopy. After the second cover, sprays are made at 2-week intervals until harvest.
