Diseases of the mahonia: Answer: Diseases of the maony


Dear Elena,
the Maonia is substantially sensitive to three diseases caused by fungi: Uropyxis sanguinea (leaf rust); Colletotrichum mahoniae (leaf spots); Oidium spp. (mal white). Her symptoms seem to describe advanced stages of the second pathology, the one caused by Colletotrichum mahoniae. First of all it is necessary to eliminate the dry and severely wasted parts. After the cut two treatments are performed
spaced 15 to 20 days apart from each other with a product based on the active ingredient Benomyl (commercial product Fitomyl at a dose of 10 grams per 10 liters).
