Texas Root Rot
We have lost 2 peach trees and found out that we live in an area where cotton grew and the reason our trees died was caused by Texas Root Rot. Citrus grows great, but unfortunetly other fruit trees will not survive. Anyone else have this problem? We do have a Fig Tree that is doing well. Hopefuly it'll not be effected. The trees were both loaded with fruit and almost over night their leaves turned brown,but didn't drop off. The fruit just dried up and the tree died. I was told there is absolutly nothing we can do to the soil to prevent the rot. Guess we'll just plant some more citrus and cross our fingers.
