Pest and Disease Management
General pest and disease practices as listed in notes. Juicy Fruit is sensitive to pythium, phytopthera, and thelaviopsis. Maintaining proper pH (5.5-5.8) and good sanitation practices will help alleviate problems. Increased air circulation, proper water management and good soil porosity are also critical. Rhapsody or copper based fungicide has been found to be effective in preventing erwinia. Agrimycin is also effective as a preventative for controlling erwinia.
Water early in the morning and maintain low humidity. Thrip control is necessary because Juicy Fruits are susceptible to INSV.
-Preventive fungicides are recommended at transplant.
-High light required at production.
