Preventing Sweet Orange Scab in Citrus Crops
Sweet orange scab (SOS) is caused by the fungus Elsinöe australis.
SOS results in scab-like lesions.
Although it has little effect on the internal fruit, it leaves severe blemishing rendering the fruit unsalable.
The disease can cause premature fruit drop, stunt young nursery trees, and new field plantings.
Current GroAloe tests involve many different aspects from pre-bloom, maturation and pre-harvest to post harvest treatment.
GroAloe penetrates the tree killing fungus at tree level as well during procedure once it arrives.
