How can I treat Brown Rot?

Expert Answer

Strikes when stone fruit are nearly ripe and spreads rapidly. Salvage the crop, cut out the bad bits and cook or freeze. Remove all trace of diseased fruit from the tree. Spray with copper in winter to kill the spores. Repeat copper spray just before bud bursts. Prune to improve air flow by opening up the tree’s centre.
