Best fungicide for fruit trees

I use one two month old bottle of iprodione on my fruit trees. Its supposed to be an forsythia killer or as its called here in the us is forsythia killer. I use the bottle for one of my blueberry bushes. I notice one after another black spot are slowly poping up where the bottle was. Will these black spots eventually kill the whole plant, or will I be able to spray again without killing the entire plant.

Could I let the forsythia stay in order to get rid of any other pest problems that may appear in the future? What type of insect and or worm would try to feed on this plant?

Would I need to drench the entire plant or just the spot that got sprayed.

At first I thought you could water the black spot in order to kill off the forsythia. I was still surprised when I found your post. I wouldn't be able to detect any signs of insecticide on the black spot. The spot is still growing to the point it is getting bigger by the day.

If the insecticide kills the plant, yes you can leave it there. Insecticide doesn't usually kill plants unless it gets into the leaf or other part of the plant. If the black spot is getting bigger, you have other problems that aren't getting the proper attention. If the black spot doesn't start getting smaller with the killing off of the forsythia, then you may have a bigger problem that requires some more immediate attention.

Are you spraying with a sprayer or can you drench it? If it is a sprayer, does it have an oscillating fan at the base? You would want to use a can of silver spray, a liquid plant bug killer, and some wilt killer. You might want to also put a good thick layer of mulch on top of the black spot. I know that it is normal for any plant to be blackened for a little bit with the forsythia, but that doesn't mean it is killed. It just looks like that from far away.

Thank you for your information. I will be able to use that at some point today. There was an oscillating fan.

Today I was spraying in the morning before a storm. When I went back into the area around the black spot it appeared to be wet. I thought this might be the best way to spray. There was no silver solution, or wilt killer in the bottle. I put some water in the bottom to help keep it from running out.

Is it safe to use insecticide around the apple tree or grapevines?

I thought you had to spray with a certain pressure or it won't get into the leaves.

I have always mixed the forsythia with the apples. My friend told me that his father used to do this when he was growing apples, so I mixed the forsythia with apples. Do you know if this would be a bad idea?

For apples, yes it would be a bad idea. Apples have a natural repellent. Apples also have high nitrates, so forsythia would prevent the apples from absorbing the nitrates.

I know it is forsythia, but my blueberries have been through the middle of the forsythia. In an earlier post, it said you need a high rate of dilution for fruit trees? How do I know how much dilution I need?

You use a 10-30-10 or a 15-30-15 on apples and the 10-30-10 or 10-45-10 on peaches and other types of fruit. It all depends on the plant.

I sprayed my family's apple tree today with some can't miss, top-shelf insecticide. It said to use it on one tree at a time for one year and it won't harm other fruit trees. The label said this would work great on fruit trees. It is not a broad-spectrum insecticide. It works against psyllids, the green peach aphid, diamond back moths, and the redbanded leafroller. It will also work on black spot and other fungus. I read it on a site today, not here. I have not read much on these in any books or magazines. The rate on the label is 3.5 gallons of the product per acre. I looked at the label a bit and got confused. My family is going to spray it on the day before it rains, and I am going to use the diluted product. Is it okay to use this diluted product?

What type of rate on insecticide would you use for citrus trees? Do you put it on the tree before you fertil
