Fire Blight: A Destructive Enemy Fire blight is a serious disease caused by the bacterium Erwinia amylovora. The disease damages blossoms and shoots, reducing yields, disfiguring fruit and diminishing the vigor of the trees it attacks. Severe infections may also compromise scaffold limbs, trunks and root systems, and can eventually cause tree death. Bacteria lie dormant in the winter at the edges of cankers formed on twigs, branches, scaffolds and trunks during the previous growing season. Bacteria in cankers begin to multiply in the spring, just after new growth has begun. The canker also begins to produce exudates containing mil ions of bacteria.
Insects and rain are the primary transporters of fire blight bacteria. Flying and crawling insects, attracted to exudates, carry the bacteria to open blossoms and from tree to tree. Rain spreads bacteria from cankers or other infected areas of a tree to new sites. Upwards of 10 million bacteria can be present inside a single blossom by the time fire blight symptoms become visible.
Fire blight infection can spread beyond the blossom into the branch and even further, causing green plant tissue to wither and die. Bacteria can also infect vegetation, fruit and bark through wounds caused by rain, hail and wind. Al this time, more bacteria-laden exudates are forming and being dispersed. • Damages blossoms, Plant tissue is vulnerable to infection during the growth period; fruit is susceptible until just before shoots, trunk androot stock harvest. Once growth has stopped, overwintering cankers start to form and the cycle begins again.

Prevention Is the KeyPlant pathologists recommend three approaches to fire blight prevention: reducing susceptibility of the tree, reducing the amount of the exudates on the host and preventing the bacterium from developing on the host. Reduce host vulnerability by selecting an appropriate orchard site and resistant tree varieties. Prune young orchards annually if possible. Do not increase nitrogen supply suddenly. Cut root sprouts and suckers above the soil line when trees are dormant, and remove spurs on trunks and scaffold limbs.
Reduce fire blight exudate by removing overwintering cankers on all blighted tissue and minimizing non-orchard sources of exudates. Prevent development of bacteria by using a resistance-management program with the proven bactericides of Nufarm – Agri-mycin, Mycoshield, BlightBan A506, Champ DP, Champ Flowable 2 Formula and Champion WP.

Adhere to Pre-Harvest Intervals: Bacterial Spot: A Costly Disease Bacterial spot can be a formidable problem for peach and nectarine growers. The disease is caused by the bacterium Xanthomonas pruni, which damages leaves, fruit and growing shoots, causing defoliation and making fruit unmarketable. Bacterial spot has a three-phase life cycle: dormancy, a primary cycle and a secondary cycle.
Bacteria overwinter in spring cankers on young twigs. When growth resumes, the bacteria multiply and form exudate. The bacteria thrive in the exudate, which seeps out of the canker. Dew, fog, rain, wind and foraging insects carry the exudate to leaves, fruit and shoots. Driving rain is a particularly harmful means of spreading bacterial spot. Bacterial spot infections blacken blossoms, leaves and branches, leave brown or black blemishes on fruit, cause early leaf drop and contribute to loss of vigor. Tree death can result. Pears are also vulnerable to secondary bacterial spot infections from summer cankers, exudate Xanthomonas pruni from leaf lesions and exudate from existing fruit infections. The secondary infection is spread • Attacks fruit, leaves by the same means as the primary infection. During rainy, windy summers, bacterial spot can • On leaves, water- become very severe.

Prevention Is the KeyPlant pathologists favor prevention programs that emphasize sound cultural practices and use of bactericide sprays to reduce the presence of bacterial spot.
How to Reduce Bacterial Spot Pathogens:
• Selecting resistant varieties for orchards • Planting new trees far from susceptible varieties • Avoiding excess nitrogen • Pruning new infection promptly • Use Nufarm bactericides Application Schedule Controlling Bacterial Spot on Peaches, Nectarines and Pears

Use the higher labeled rates when rainfall or disease • Infects leaves and fruit pressure is heavy. The Copper Champs may be applied with agricultural oil. • Heavy infection can Do not apply copper products as post-dormant cover sprays, as spotting of leaves cause defoliation or defoliation may occur.
• Mainly reduces fruit quality • Lesions are black and On peaches and nectarines, apply Mycoshield weekly starting at shuck split normally surrounded by yellow halo and continue applying weekly until three weeks before harvest. Schedule may • Lesions are also slightly call for up to nine applications, but applications must cease three weeks prior raised, but unlike to harvest. Apply at the rate of 150 ppm active ingredient, or 12 oz. of Mycoshield bacterial spot, do notcrack or become scaly per hundred gallons of water. On pears, Mycoshield can be applied to control fire blight as well as bacterial spot. Apply 8 oz. Mycoshield per 50 gallons water, or 1 lb. Mycoshield per 100 gallons. Begin applications at 10% bloom at a rate of 50-100 gallons of spray solution per acre. Repeat applications at 4-6 day intervals. This may involve up to 8-10 applications. Do not apply within 60 days of harvest. Nufarm Americas Inc.
