Abstract

The sooty blotch and flyspeck (SBFS) disease complex is the major target of fungicide sprays from shortly after petal fall until harvest. The fungi in this complex blemish the fruit cuticle. The result can be a loss of up to 94% of the crop’s market value, because blemished fruit are downgraded from freshmarket to cider grade and water loss is accelerated during storage of SBFS-infested apples.
