  20. 20. Queensland Primary Industries and Fisheries Crop load affects quality • ↓ anthracnose & ↓ N:Ca with ↑ crop load • But, ↑ stem-end rot with ↑ crop load – Stem-end rot more severe when trees are stressed – Optimum irrigation and nutrition critical for control © The State of Queensland, Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation, 2009

Queensland Primary Industries and Fisheries Assessment of new strobilurin products • Initially a product screening trial (2008) – pyraclostrobin – Group 11 (previously Group K) – metiram – zinc based protectant fungicide – boscalid – locally systemic f’cide with wide activity – pyraclostrobin + boscalid – pyraclostrobin + metiram • Then as part of an anti-resistance program (2009) – Pyraclostrobin ± metiram © The State of Queensland, Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation, 2009

  25. 25. Queensland Primary Industries and Fisheries Most effective and responsible use of fungicides • Always follow label directions • Protectants – no “short-cuts” in copper spray program (every 28 days in fine weather, every 14 days if wet) • Strobilurins – only Amistar® registered in avocado – post-infection activity – use with copper sprays in an anti-resistance strategy – effective when applied close to harvest and after extended periods of wet weather • Postharvest – apply prochloraz within 24h after harvest – use in conjunction with field spray program – can’t be used on fruit destined for Europe © The State of Queensland, Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation, 2009
