Report on Surround-soaked footsies for peaches and peach scab
I put Surround-soaked on all my PF 24 C peaches when they were about a thumb size. I picked them today. All have no plum curculio or any other insect marks on them at all. This is my second year of using these footsies with great success, Mind you, I have only 30+ peaches so I could do it. I don't know if you want to put them on 100 of peaches.
My peaches have no insect damages but suffered scab pretty badly. I read an old post on scab. Jellyman, Scott and Olpea commented on that post re. peach scab vs bacteria spot. I think my peaches have scab. They are mostly around the stems. It made my peaches look rather ugly but I'll peel skin off before I eat. Next year, I will spray them with sulfur (before I put footsies on them) as Scott suggested on that post.
