Spring Psa spray programme

21 September 2017

As bud break in Gold3 is advanced in many regions, and Hayward bud break is upon us, growers are looking to protect new growth from Psa.

It is important growers develop and implement protective spray programmes that follow recommended best practice, including using recommended label rates and following product use conditions.

All growers looking to use bactericides should ensure they comply with the additional requirements associated with these products, including the completion of an Orchard Psa IPM Strategy (OPIS) "intent to spray" form and site inspection forms.

Further spray information details are also available on the KVH website.
