Abstract:
Gummosis caused by Phytophthora parasitica and P. citrophthora is a serious problem in Arizona citrus groves. In a 15-year-old Orlando tangelo planting at the Yuma Mesa Agricultural Center, a 20 cm section of trunk on each tree was painted with phosphorous acid, metalaxyl or fosetyl-Al. After treatment, pieces of bark were periodically removed from within, as well as below, the treated area and inoculated with P. parasitica and P. citrophthora. After 117 days, both Phytophthora species were inhibited on bark treated with phosphorous acid, metalaxyl or fosetyl-Al. Canker development was also reduced on bark tissue sampled 10 cm below the site of treatment. The results suggest that trunk application of phosphorous acid, metalaxyl or fosetyl-Al can provide effective protection against Phytophthora gummosis of citrus.
