AgriPhage – Nut & Stone Fruit – Peach Bacterial Spot

AgriPhage is a safer, long-term solution vs. chemicals and antibiotics to increase yields and eliminate Peach Bacterial Spot

Peach Bacterial Spot

Peach spot is a highly damaging bacterial disease that can cause premature fruit drop along with spotting and damage to mature fruit rendering it unmarketable. The causal organism is Xanthomonas arboricola pv. pruni. which is very difficult to control due to the fragility of the fruit and common treatments are phytotoxic, causing fruit and leaf damage. AgriPhage should be applied at petal fall, shuck split, and anytime from 1st cover through 11th cover to suppress the severity of the disease and to treat active lesions in young leaves.

AgriPhage is not phytotoxic and will not negatively affect beneficial organisms.

  • Pre-Harvest Interval (PHI) of 0 days. May be applied up to and including the day of harvest.
  • Restricted-Entry Interval (REI) of 4 hours.

Application Instructions

  • Begin applications when conditions are conducive to development of disease. Repeat application every 3 to 10 days as needed, for as long as conditions favor disease development.
  • Under light to moderate disease pressure or for smaller plants, use lower rates (1 to 2 quarts/acre).
  • Under severe disease pressure, or when environmental conditions and plant stage are conducive to rapid disease development, use higher label rates (2 to 3 quarts/acre), and apply more frequently (every 3-7 days).
