Elm Leaf Spot
Elmsavers incorporates elm leaf beetle and fruit tree borer treatments with fungicides that control the unsightly fungal disease known as Elm Leaf Spot.
Elm Leaf spot (Phloeospora ulmi) susceptible species U.Procera English, U. Glabra, cultivars Weeping elm “Camperdownii, Horizontal elm “Horizontalis” and Golden elm “Lutescens”
The disease is now very wide spread, humid summers have favoured its rapid spread from an isolated disease to one which is found where all elms grow. The problem has become evident from late summer onwards causing premature leaf drop and ruined foliage. This disease is also associated with Phomopsis as a complex. Both are controlled by our treatment ..
