Control of Apiosporina morbosa

Studies were carried out in Ontario (CA) on control of Apiosporina morbosa (EPPO A1 quarantine pest) with several fungicides, during 1988 and 1990 in plum orchards and in 1992 in sour cherry orchards. The most effective fungicides were: captan, chlorothalonil, dichlone, fenbuconazole and sulfur. Benomyl, propiconazole and flusilazole were of intermediate activity. Ipriodione, myclobutanil, tebuconazole, triforine, canola (rape) oil and soybean oil were ineffective.
