Spray informationDevelop a year-round protective spray plan using recommended products with different modes of action to maximise disease control. Always use label rates to avoid the risk of product resistance or tolerance developing. The success of any spray programme is reliant on good spray coverage.
Psa spray programmes
A considered and targeted spray programme is just one tool you can use to help manage Psa on-orchard. Any spray programme should be applied in conjunction with informed seasonal management and an understanding other good Psa management practices, including identification of symptoms, hygiene, prevention, monitoring and dealing with infected materials.
Resources relating to Psa spray plans and good practice are produced by Zespri and available on the Zespri Canopy here and include:
