Fungicides, dodine, fentin hydroxide, captafol, and benomyl, gave adequate control of pecan scab caused by Fusicladium effusum Wint., using a 3-week spray schedule beginning April 22 and concluding August 5. Massive applications of dodine and captafol at bud break to replace the first 3 scheduled applications failed to give equivalent control of scab.
Leaf scorch symptoms are described. Control was excellent using any of the fungicides tested. Leaves of checks were severely damaged by scorch. It is suggested that 1 or more fungi are associated with the cause(s) of this malady. Fungicides increased quality by increasing percentage of edible kernel, reducing shuck damage, and increasing wt of nuts.
