Simplified Fungicide Guide for Backyard Fruit (PPFS-GEN-08)
Both commercial and backyard fruit production often require fungicides for high yields of disease-free fruit. In order to effectively manage disease, correct fungicides must be applied at optimal times. The Simplified Fungicide Guide for Backyard Fruit streamlines those decisions for backyard orchardists and outlines timing of fungicides with target diseases. Fungicide recommendations focus on low cost, small package, and easy-to-locate products.
Simplified Fungicide Guide for Backyard Fruit (PPFS-GEN-08) is available online. This publication can also be used with Disease and Insect Control Program for Homegrown Fruit in Kentucky (ID-21) and/or other simplified spray guides available on the Extension Plant Pathology website.
