Many different tools are required to manage pink rot appropriately, including irrigation, fungicides, and post-harvest treatments. This presentation outlines some of our recent research in these areas.
You didn’t make any fungicide applications to deal with pink rot. However, in late July or early August you find some pink rot in the field. Is it too late? Can you still apply fungicides and get some level of disease control?
2012 was a relatively light year for pink rot in our research trials. However, we did see significant disease control with phosphorous acid (Resist 57).
