Cedar Apple Rust treatment?
We planted 12 apple trees (mixed variety) this spring, about 2 months ago and I am seeing signs of cedar apple rust (rust-colored spots on leaves), if my research is correct.
Since this is a new planting I removed most of the apple blossoms and didn't get around to spraying until just 2 weeks ago. I am using Bonide Fruit Tree spray.
My question is: 1) what is effective treatment (spray) for CAR? and 2) does it matter to spray anymore if i don't plan to harvest apples and my trees already have CAR? (in other words, should i just wait until treating until next spring or will it make a difference to treat CAR this year?)
