Diseases of Apple: Sooty Blotch and Fly Speck Management

This is in continuation with my previous post on Diseases of Apple: Sooty Blotch and Fly Speck. In this post we are going to discuss about the management of the two diseases. 

These two diseases though superficial but makes a dent in the marketing of the fruit as it reduces the market value. Both the diseases can be managed easily with the scheduled spray. If a spray of Ziram @ 600g/200L water done 20 days prior to harvest the quality of the produce increases manifolds and the fruit can be sent to market with fancy grades

In coming post I shall be discussing viral and viroid diseases
