Apple Scab on Crabapples.
Small Fruits All Locations
Posted on: March 19, 2017 by Rich Guggenheim
The wet weather and cooler temperatures this spring has led to favorable conditions for apple scab to develop. Apple scab can lead to the defoliation of ornamental crabapples planted in the landscape.
The first visible symptoms of apple scab in the spring are pale, water-soaked spots the size of a pinhead on the new leaves.
Sanitation practices are the best cultural way to manage the spread of this fungal disease. Avoid water on the leaves to prevent spread of fungal spores.
