Summary

An improved method for the evaluation of Venturia inaequalis infections of apple trees in
field trials is proposed. The method takes into account the position of infected leaves on
long shoots. A MS Excel worksheet was developed to facilitate the processing of these
data. This can be downloaded at http://www.oeon.de/downloads/venturia.zip. We use this
worksheet in our field trials and also for our consultancy service to compare different onfarm
control strategies.
