Who Am I?

Anthracnose is the name of a common fungal disease; some species are host specific and others have multiple hosts. Besides causing damages to crops in the field, anthracnose is an important postharvest disease that favors periods of extended cool and wet weather.

Symptoms of anthracnose vary depending on the host, and the infected plant part. Symptoms include: mild and irregular, brown to black spots on leaves and fruits, blighting, and dieback of twigs and branches.

Caution and careful notice should be taken when using any plant protection products (insecticides, fungicides, and herbicides). It is the grower’s sole responsibility to keep track of the legal uses and permissions with respect to the laws in their country and destination markets. Always read the instructions written on labels, and in a case of contradiction, work in accordance to the product label. Keep in mind that information written on the label usually applies to local markets. Pest control products intended for organic farming are generally considered to be less effective in comparison to conventional products. When dealing with organic, biologic, and to some extent a small number of conventional chemical products, a complete eradication of a pest or disease will often require several iterations of a specific treatment or combination of treatments.
