Identifying and Preventing Peach Leaf Curl
Peach leaf curl is a fungal disease infecting peach trees. This pathogen harms the leaves, weakening the tree and reducing the amount of fruit it produces. Water from rain and irrigation spreads this fungus, and the spores survive the high temperatures and dry conditions of summer. Dormant season spraying, good orchard hygiene, and planting resistant varieties are effective for controlling this problem.
