Bacteria Canker: Recommendations wanted
Hello, I have always had alittle canker in my orchard, but it was never a big issue until this year. In 2011 we had 2X the normal rainfall with extensive flooding, which killed most of my peaches and number of my plums (heavy soil with the water level at the top of the soil for many weeks). Many of the surviving plums were weakened and this year canker exploded, killing whole trees, or large leaders, and multiple trees with goo spots on the main trunks, as well as leasions on smaller branches.
What should I do? I am cutting all the dead wood out, and trimming the smaller leasions, but should I cut out the leasions and spray them with bleach on the main trunks as well A planting of Cherries (raised bed) on Gielsa 5 have goo where the graft tree was cut on every tree.
