Control of pre- and postharvest fruit rot of raspberries by field sprays

Acta Horticulturae: 73-80

Control of pre- and postharvest fruit rot of raspberries by field sprays

Results are presented of comparative fungicide tests with preharvest sprays in 1970-75. Considerable rot developed within 48 h of harvest even though field incidence was 1% or less. Fungicides had little effect on marketable yield or berry size. In general captan appeared the most effective for total rot control, and was the only fungicide to reduce Rhizopus when incidence of this was high. When R. was a minor rot contributor, no fungicide showed a significant effect on the fungus.

Sixty-four to 93% rot developed in raspberries 40 to 60 hours after harvest, even though the incidence of fruit rot in the field was 1% or less. Field sprays of captan 1 1/2 lb/acre were most effective in increasing the holding quality of the frui...

Consistent control is thus not possible with field sprays of the...
