Fungicides have continued to play an important role in disease control strategies for many
ornamental producers. New fungicides whose activity ranges are not currently known are
becoming available for testing on ornamental crops. In addition, tests designed to help expand
the labels of registered fungicides are an integral part of the CFREC-Apopka fungicide research
program. The diseases caused by fungi which were researched during the past year were:
Botrytis blight of geranium, Corynespora leaf spot of lipstick vine, Fusarium leaf spot ol
dracaena, and powdery mildew of gerber daisy.
Botrytis Blight of Geranium
Botrytis blight of geranium (Pelargonium hortorum) is caused by Botrytis cinerea which
is a pathogen of most flowering and foliage crops. Two tests were performed in 1991. In tesi
1, plants were sprayed with fungicides to the point of drip on a weekly interval between 18 Jul)
and 1 August 1991. Treatments included EXP10064B (a numbered compound from Rhone
Poulenc) at two rates (2 and 4 oz per 100 gal), iprodione (Chipco 26019 50WDG) at two rate.
(16 and 32 oz per 100 gal), a mixture of EXP10064B and iprodione (2 and 16 oz per 100 gal
respectively), a mixture of EXP10221 (a numbered compound from Rhone Poulenc) anc
iprodione (2 and 16 oz per 100 gal, respectively), and chlorothalonil (Daconil 2787 75WP at 24
oz per 100 gal). Control plants were sprayed with water only. Plants were naturally infected
with B. cinerea by 7 August at which time the number of active lesions per plant wa.
determined. All of the treatments gave a good degree of control of Botrytis blight on geraniurn
without any evidence of phytotoxicity (Fig. 1).
The second test was performed with the following treatments: noninoculated and
inoculated controls sprayed with water, thiophanate methyl (Domain FL at 20 oz per 100 gal)
chlorothalonil (Daconil 2787 90WDG at 20 oz per 100 gal), and ASC-66825 (a numbered
compound from ISK Biotech) at two rates (4 and 16 oz per 100 gal). Treatments were applied
by spraying to drip weekly from 16 January to 6 February 1992. Plants were inoculated witt
spores of B. cinerea on 31 January although, within 1 week, it became evident that all plant,
