Brown rot control in summerfruit

Brown rot control in summerfruit

Project Group: Summerfruit NZ

Status: In Progress

Timeline: Oct, 2022 - Jul, 2024

Last Updated: 04/04/2024

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 have been completed to evaluate efficacy and residues of a Group 3 fungicide in cherries, apricots and peaches. The project is awaiting residue analysis and final reporting.
