Control of citrus scab disease.

Citrus scab is a fungal disease that spreads in warm humid conditions. Minute water-soaked yellowish creamy or pinkish spots appeared on the leaves and fruits. As the disease spreads these pustules turn brown and fruits have a rough appearance. Don’t over irrigate the field. Prune the infected or more crowded branches and fruits. Intercrop the citrus trees with avocado or papaya. Gardeners can use difenoconazole to control it.
