Sorry I sent such little information the first time. My 2 1/2 year old
grandson came down for a little visit!
You may already be aware of the cultural practices to manage your twig
blight, but make sure you prune and destroy infected twigs and branches. It
is also possible for both Kabatina and Phomopsis twig blight to occur on the
same plant. If only Phomopsis is present, apply the azoxystrobin,
thiophanate methyl, or copper when new growth is present. I would recommend
a good copper spray before new buds break in spring also, but be sure to
follow the recommended frequency in the spray guide for whichever chemical
you use. We use Kocide almost exclusively for our copper spray but you can
use any of the recommended sprays.
http://www.ppath.cas.psu.edu/EXTENSION/PLANT_DISEASE/aborvit.html will give
you the trade name for other choices, including the ones you have mentioned
and will also give you recommendations on the possibility of Kabatina. Try
http://store.yahoo.com/btgrowersupply/kocidetno.html Growers Supply for the
Kocide. They usually have the smaller quantity in stock. Hope this helps!
