Black spot, caused by Diplocarpon rosae, is the most common and frustrating fungal disease of roses. Almost all roses, from old garden to modern, are susceptible. While many rose growers do not want to spray, if left untreated, black spot can weaken and cause death in vulnerable roses.
This program will review facts about Diplocarpon rosae and discuss options for management. Both spray and non-spray strategies will be considered, as well as a review of different fungicides and spray regimens.
The program is free but registration is requested by calling 828-255-5522.
