Research

Loquat scab caused by Fusicladium eriobotryae is the main disease affecting the loquat crop. The efficacy of 13 fungicides against F. eriobotryae was evaluated in vitro by testing their effect on mycelial growth and conidial germination. Results indicate that the fungicides currently recommended in southeastern Spain against loquat scab provide adequate disease control, and new active ingredients could be added to the present management strategies.
