Leaf Wetness - Winfield North and South

Sunday Apr 25, 2021

ATTENTION! The Winfield North and Winfield South weather stations are not reading leaf wetness. Growers Supply and WSU have been informed of the issue. This is a critical bloom stage to be protected against scab, as many varieties are at the pink stage. Growers in the Winfield area with susceptible varieties or who have blocks with a history of scab infections should maintain scab spray coverage throughout the pink-petal fall period.are strongly advised.

If no protectant spray coverage was applied prior to the rain fall events of April 24 and 25, 2021, growers should consider their scab options from the list provided in the BC Production Guide. Some neighbouring geographic areas are recording scab infection periods.
