Summary

Strategic irrigation is a method to prevent Apple scab. It is performed by irrigating the orchard floor in dry periods during spring, 24 hours before rain forecast. Irrigating the old leaves on the orchard floor will elicit the release of ascospores, but due to the dry trees and the dry weather, the ascospores dry out without causing infections.
