Evaluation of Foliar Fungicide Sprays for the Control of Boxwood Blight, Caused by the Fungus Cylindrocladium buxicola

B. Henricot and E. Wedgwood

October 2013

Research

Cylindrocladium buxicola causes a damaging blight disease on boxwood which has spread rapidly throughout Europe since the mid 1990s. The pathogen has also been recently identified in the USA and British Columbia. To address this, preventative and curative foliar fungicide sprays previously shown in laboratory tests to have efficacy were evaluated over two autumn/winter seasons in the UK.
