Serenade for late blight

prhartFebruary 10, 2006

Late blight is endemic in this area and it requires a regular spray regimen to control. Daconil and mancozeb do the job but I would prefer an safer alternative. I have recently learned of Serenade, using Bacillus subtilis, as a control, either by itself or in combination with copper foliar spray. Does anyone have experience using this and can you provide recommendations on the spray schedule?

I've seen no references to the efficacy of Serenade or Messenger ( harpin) or similar, being effective in preventing Late Blight.

Even the best of the commercial products arent' that good.

You've got a terrific resource in NC with Dr Gardeners group in Western NC and if I were you I'd check directly with your local ag ext person to discuss this with him or her.
