Cherry Leaf Spot (PPFS-FR-T-06)
Cherry leaf spot occurs on both sweet and sour cherry trees; however, it is considerably more serious on sour cherries. Premature defoliation from cherry leaf spot reduces flower bud set for the next year, weakens trees, and increases sensitivity to winter injury.
Cherry Leaf Spot (PPFS-FR-T-06) is available online.
