Brown rot control in summerfruit

Brown rot control in summerfruit

Project Group: Summerfruit NZ

Status: In Progress

Timeline: Oct, 2022 - Mar, 2023

Last Updated: 01/05/2023

Brown rot control in stonefruit has been compromised by the failure of existing chemistry to provide acceptable efficacy. Summerfruit NZ, along with A Lighter Touch and a crop protection company, are working together to secure a label registration for stonefruit. Four field trials are being undertaken to evaluate efficacy and residues of a Group 3 fungicide in cherries, apricots and peaches.
