Prevention is the best disease management plan
Peaches originating in China, have been produced in Canada since the 1700s, primarily for fresh consumption. Since peaches
are being grown in their northernmost limits in Canada, growers take great pains to help their orchards thrive. And that
means disease prevention and management. Along with scouting, pruning, cultivation and brush removal, applying the right
fungicide at the right time will help keep yield-robbing diseases under control all season.
Clean orchards help improve yields
Alleviating the weed competition during critical crop development can have a significant affect in achieving optimum peach
yields. Controlling weeds outside these critical periods can also help reduce the source of weed seeds and increase harvesting
efficiencies. A herbicide with a strong residual effect can often last all season, reducing work load and decreasing the
trees competition for nutrients and water.
The only thing Alion does is work. Spray it in your peach orchard for season-long control of grassy and broadleaf weeds including glysphosate, traizine and ALS-resistant weeds.
Spotting them early helps control insects
Everyone loves the sweet taste of a fresh peach. Unfortunately, damaging insects like mites, moths, peach tree borers and
aphids also find the fruit and tree irresistible. Insect control in peach orchards usually requires treating trees with
insecticides with applications accurately timed to be most effective. Knowledge of these insect pests and their life cycles
helps in scouting as well as the early diagnosis of a developing pest problem.
