Scab is an important fungal disease of pears in Western Australia.
Serious fruit losses occur in orchards where spraying is neglected, poorly timed or inefficiently carried out.
A full spray schedule, using a proven fungicide, must be adopted from spur burst onwards to ensure protection of fruit and foliage.
