Identifying and Treating Peach Scab
Peach scab is a fungal disease of peach trees most common in peach tree growing regions with warmer, wetter conditions in winter and spring. This disease causes deformation of the fruit, affecting quality and harvest. The disease is spread by rain and moisture during warm temperatures. Planting the trees in a good site, spraying to control spores in spring, and cleaning up the orchard all help prevent peach scab from occurring.
