I was the one that posted the link for Monterey Fungi-Fighter. MFF is a
systemic fungicide Propiconazole and it eliminates brown rot when
I spray MFF on my peaches at full bloom on a dry day. (no insecticides
for the bees) MFF is a systemic acting fungicide absorbed into the
leaves and blooms.
The second is a combo spray mix with Triazicide insecticide, MFF and
nu film-70(pine resin based sticker) and spray the fruitlets after shuck
I thin my peaches before the third spray. Bury any damaged ones. Then
the third combo spray is 3-4 weeks after the second spray with the same
The forth combo spray is timed 30 days before harvest and that would be
roughly July 1.
For the black dots on Peaches(for Peach scab fungus) I also spray
Chlorothalonil weekly till shuck split.
Next year you may only need three sprays for Brown rot and as little as
two sprays in the following years.
Bonide Infuse is a little lower in price, same stuff.
