Preharvest Applications of Fungicides for Control of Sphaeropsis Rot in Stored Apples

Fig. 1. Efficacy of Pristine and Topsin M applied 1 week before harvest for the control of Sphaeropsis rot in stored Golden Delicious apple fruit in the 2005-2006, 2006-2007, 2007-2008, and 2008-2009 seasons. Fruit were inoculated 2 weeks before harvest in the orchard with the conidial suspension of Sphaeropsis pyriputrescens, harvested, stored at 0°C and monitored for decay development for up to 9 months after harvest. Columns marked with the same letter are not significantly different at P = 0.05 according to Fisher’s protected least significant difference.
