Filbert Sprays

Cameren Moran

It is now getting to mid March and the time to apply your Eastern Filbert Blight spray is coming shortly. Be sure to watch your trees for bud swell, bud breakadvanced bud break, and shoot elongation. These are the timings recommended for  fungicide sprays in order to protect your trees from EFB. If you have a susceptible variety it is best practice to do a full 4 sprays for protection. As for resistant varieties a spray at bud break should be applied at minimum for protection. Remeber resistant means it has a good defense, but it is not imune.

If you have any questions regarding EFB control or sprays be sure to contact your CPS fieldman!
