Brown Rot (Peaches)

Brown Rot



Brown Rot is destructive to peaches and all stone fruits.

Fungi overwinter in twigs or in infected fruit, either

on the tree or on the ground. Healthy flower buds are

infected by blown or splashed spores. Spores from infected

blossoms are blown to healthy fruit. The more mature

the fruit, the more susceptible it is to infection.

Solution: Spray

Soap-Shield® Fungicidal Soap

over the entire tree at popcorn, full bloom and petal

fall stages. During wet weather, additional bloom sprays

may be necessary.
