Treat to Prevent Leaf Curl

Late winter is the perfect time to treat bare root stone fruit trees for the fungal disease ‘Leaf Curl’. The trees received one spray with Copper Oxychloride before they left the growers. As the buds start to swell, now is the time to apply a second spray to prevent the infection taking hold. Once the leaves have emerged it is too late to treat for Leaf Curl.
