6th Monilinia Update for Nova Scotia, May 21, 2021

Friday, May 21, 2021


This is our 6th Monilinia update for this year. This will be a short update as the last two weeks’ weather has slowed things down.

We are fast approaching the end of the Monilinia season this year in most of the central part of NS. According to our last few infection periods schedule, if there are infections, you should be able to see some symptoms this weekend and early next week. In other later areas where fields have just reached the 40-50% F2 stage of development, plants are still susceptible to infection.

I will give a last update about Monilinia for 2021 season next Friday and I will move into Botrytis and other management updates after that.

The next update is on May 21st.
