Our study shows that physical injury combined with contamination cause skin discoloration (inking) on peaches and nectarines. Iron, copper, and aluminum were the most deleterious contaminants studied. To reduce inking incidence, we have developed safe preharvest application intervals that yield low inking incidence for benomyl iprodione (Rovral), triforine (Funginex), vinclozolin (Ronilan DF) (Benlate) and certain foliar nutrients.
