How much Fertilome with Neem Py do I spray dwarf fruit trees (apples & peaches) and how frequently?
Per the product label: As a preventative, apply fertilome FRUIT TREE SPRAY on a 7 to 14 day schedule until the potential for disease development is no longer present. To control disease already present, apply fertilome FRUIT TREE SPRAY on a 7 day schedule until disease pressure is eliminated. Then continue spraying on a 14 day schedule to prevent the disease from reoccurring. To prevent rust leaf spot diseases, anthracnose and scab, begin applications at the first sign of spring budding. To prevent powdery mildew, apply in mid-summer or when disease is first detected. For brown patch and dollar spot, begin spraying at first sign of disease on a 7 to 14 day interval. For snow mold, begin spraying on a 14 day interval in the fall before the first snow. Continue applications until disease pressure no longer exists.
Mixing Instructions: Mix fertilome FRUIT TREE SPRAY at the rate of 2 tablespoons (1 fluid ounce) per gallon of water. Thoroughly mix solution and spray all plant leaf surfaces (including undersides of leaves) until completely wet. Excessive application is unnecessary and to be avoided
