Summary

In the years 2005 to 2007 a plastic cover was tested in a testing area planted with
apricots and operated according to the regulations for organic production.
Compared to the untreated control, fruit below the plastic cover showed decreased
coloration. Monilia laxa infestations below the plastic cover could not be fully
prevented, but were reduced considerably also by copper applications during
flowering in 2007. Yield of the variant treated with copper, however, remained below
average.
Losses due to rot during storage were smallest with the covered variant.
