Hi all. Here in Northern VA, zone 6b, I had horrible brown rot last
year. I tried Serenade, but I think the rot was too entrenched for the
Serenade to make a difference.
I am going to try Indar this year. I had emailed Dow AgroSciences
Information [INFO at dow.com] to find out where I could purchase. Following
was the response for my area.

Indar is much more affective than Captan for the control of blossum
and brown rot. Here in humid southeastern NY, once I have the pathogen
under control I can often control BR with a single application of Indar
month before the first peaches ripen. With plums a seperate application
be necessary a month before the particular variety ripens. In very wet
seasons an extra application or 2 may be necessary, but I never have to
spray within a month of harvest anything besides cherries.
I am interested in the efficacy of Pristine. Has anyone out there tried
reduced applications of that substance to control BR in their orchards?

Richard, there are some lower impact options out there that may (or
may not) work for you. I had kept brown rot away for several years by
spraying copper plus a sticker 3-4 times in the spring, up through
shuck split on the peaches. I only did two copper sprays this last
spring (and nothing later) and I ended up with bad brown rot for the
first time. So if you use copper you need lots of coverage. It
cannot be sprayed after shuck split due to phytotoxicity. This coming
summer I am going to be trying Serenade MAX and Saf-T-Side oil later
in the season. There was a study which found both of these moderately
effective against brown rot. The Saf-T-Side was more effective than
Captan in the study. Sulphur is also somewhat effective but based on
my limited experience you really need to be diligent on the coverage
to get efficacy. If you have lots of pathogen build-up in your
orchard you may need to use Indar or the like for a season or two just
to lower the pressure.
I would be interested in hearing what other organic growers are doing
about brown rot.
