Fuchs, J. G.; Haseli, A. and Tamm, L. (2002) Influence of application strategy of coconut soap on the development of sooty blotch on apple. [Einfluss der Anwendungsstrategie von Biofa Cocana RF auf Regenfleckkrankheit des Apfels.] In: Boos, Markus (Ed.) Ecofruit - 10th International Conference on Cultivation Technique and Phytopathological Problems in Organic Fruit-Growing: Proceedings to the Conference from 31st January to 2nd February 2006 at Weinsberg/Germany, pp. 50-54.
Sooty blotch causes heavy losses in Swiss organic apple production. In 2000 and 2001 a late season application strategy with coconut soap (Biofa Cocana RF) was evaluated. Coconut soap reduced disease occurrence in ali experiments. However, the efficacy was much higher in 2000 than in 2001, probably due to a much higher disease pressure in 2001.
