Tetracycline therapy of pear decline and X-disease in peach and cherry

Acta Horticulturae (44): 17

Tetracycline therapy of pear decline and X-disease in peach and cherry

Oxytetracyclene HCl (Terramycin) solution, 50-100 mu g/ml, was transfused from reservoirs through plastic tubes and connectors into diseased trees. Pear trees with decline symptoms remained free of leaf curl symptoms throughout the season when treated in summer or early autumn and made excellent growth and produced more and larger fruit in the following season; severely diseased trees required 2 or 3 annual treatments.
