New post-harvest fungicide available for avocados

The post-harvest fungicide Graduate A+® is now registered for use on avocados in Australia.


Graduate A+® can be applied as a post-harvest dip, drench or flood spray to control a range of post-harvest rots, including side rots (caused by anthracnose Colletotrichum spp. and Botryosphaeriaceous fungi) and stem-end rots (caused by Lasiodiplodia spp., Fusicoccum spp., Neofusicoccum spp., Colletotrichum spp.).


The fungicide is now registered and available from local agricultural chemical suppliers and promotional activities are being organised for all key avocado producing regions.
