Dothistroma spray time again

August 2007
New Zealand Tree Grower;Aug2007, Vol. 28 Issue 3, p18
The article focuses on the spray program developed by the Dothistroma Control Committee (DCC), a sub-committee of the Forest Owners Association (FOA) in New Zealand. Forests around the country affected with Dothistroma pini are aerially sprayed every summer with a copper fungicide to control the disease. DCC is concerned that forest owners or managers of small blocks may overlook the presence of the disease in their forests until serious damage to the stands has occurred. The committee's services are available to all forest owners to ensure the best control of the disease in the most cost effective manner.
