Fighting The Black Rot

Since we have been pounded by black rot, I had to call Jim McKenzie at Helena Chemicals to get some tougher fungicide. He sent me both Pristine and Nova. Since I didn't have my fungicide chart on hand I took a guess and opted to use the Pristine first. As it turns out the Nova offers better protection against black rot, and is also an eradicant, but the Pristine is excellent as well. And we're almost done with the japanese beetles for the year, but I decided to give them one last blast of Sevin as a parting gift...

Pristine - 12.5 oz per acre
Sevin - 1 oz per gallon (80 gallons)
