- Organic apricot production is currently not profitable.
- The main obstacle to sustainable profitability is brown rot caused by the fungus Monilinia laxa (Aderh. & Ruhl).
- In the current apricot germplasm no source of total resistance has been shown, but some varieties are expressing interesting levels of tolerance.
- A good evaluation of the M. laxa symptoms is essential for a precise diagnosis of the infection and to appreciate differences between tolerant and susceptible varieties and genotypes.
