Apple scab infection period now… (May 13)

By Terence Bradshaw

This is a very brief message to Vermont apple growers that we are in a dry and relatively windless slot between significant wetting events and it would be wise to make sure that your fungicide coverage is maintained. I wouldn’t worry about insects now, unless you are treating for scale, but a quick reapplication of anything that may have washed off if you sprayed prior to Friday is called for. I’m heading out right now…
