On behalf of Andy Philpott:
Just a question for everyone who may be able to help us with spraying copper at bud burst.
We need to spray copper as we are just into budburst and need more copper spray. We live in Timaru by the way & have 200 Rex & Meryic trees roughly 8 years old & have had 2 harvests. Our trees are in clay loam with 8 – 12″ of top soil.
I have downloaded articles from WIG on spraying copper which are a great help, but would like to know of any distributors who sell in larger quantities than 500ml.
The articles recommend Mankocide, which is quite expensive & hard to get here.
We are about to use a newly made boom sprayer so are unsure of the output.
Andy & Karen Philpott
