Soil Disease for Stone Fruits
Due to the steadfast nature of soil-borne diseases, best results will be obtained if a control measure is used prior to disease onset or in the earliest stages of disease development. Soil diseases vary based on crop and can be either fungal or bacterial.
Stone Fruits are particularly susceptible to the following soil diseases:
- Armillaria Root Rot (Armillaria)
- Phymatotrichum Root Rot (Phymatotrichum omnivorum)
- Phytophthora Crown, Collar, and Root Rot (Phytophthora)
- Rhizoctonia Root Rot (Rhizoctonia solani)
- Verticillium Wilt (Verticillium dahlia)
