Avocado Root Rot issue

fireduck(10a)April 13, 2013

Although my heavy soil (clay) has concerned me...I have managed it with my avos for 15-20 years. Well, I am worried that one of my Hass trees is showing signs of Phytophthora. I am upset. My 16 varieties of avocados has been my retirement passion. The tree seems to have little vigor, has much small fruit (ripening), and has a branch that has died and turned black on the last 18 inches. What do you think??? Am I doomed?

Post in the linked forum below. A lot more people grow avo's there than this forum, you'll get better input.
