Will Docket DF- Generic Daconil Fungicide work for Peach Leaf Curl?
Docket DF - Generic Daconil Fungicide is not labeled to treat Peach Leaf Curl. Bonide makes Fung-onil Concentrate and Copper Liquid Fungicide Concentrate or Dust that is labeld to be used on Peach Leaf Curl.
Fung-onil Application instructions: Page 9 of Product label; Mix 3 3/4 tsp per application with 4 gallons of water. Apply at leaf fall in late autumn. When conditions favor high disease levels apply once or twice more in mid to late winter befor budswell. * Do not apply after shuck split. Please follow label instructions.
Copper Liquid: Page 7 of product label ; Mix .5-2.0 fl oz with 1 gallon of water. Use suffient water to ensure good coverage, including tops and bottoms of leaves. For best control, begin treatment 2 weeks before disease normally appears. Use the higher rate at the minimum application interval following heavy rain or when the amount of disease is increasing rapidly. If possible, time applications so that 12 hours of dry weather follow application. Apply as a dormant spray in late fall to before bud break. Repeat application every 7-10 days if necessry.
