The tool offers information on control strategies of the apple scab in organic pome fruit growing. An effective strategy includes clearing out the fallen leaves in autumn. Other possibilities are the use of nitrogenous foliar fertilisers or specific yeast preparations in autumn. You will also learn about how to measure and prevent the distribution of spores in spring.
Before selecting and using plant protection products, it is important to be able to estimate the severity of the infections. This includes reliable weather reports and forecast models for spore flight or spore traps that are counted during the rainy period. The video provides a variety of preparations which can be used in organic agriculture, as well as benefits and disadvantages.

Summary translation

Das Tool bietet Informationen zu Bekämpfungsstrategien des Apfelschorfs im ökologischen Kernobstanbau. Eine wirksame Strategie ist die Beseitigung des Laubes im Herbst. Weitere Möglichkeiten sind der Einsatz von stickstoffhaltigen Blattdüngern oder speziellen Hefepräparaten im Herbst. Außerdem erfahren Sie, wie Sie die Verbreitung von Sporen im Frühjahr messen und verhindern können. Vor der Auswahl und dem Einsatz von Pflanzenschutzmitteln ist es wichtig, den Schweregrad der Infektionen abschätzen zu können. Dazu gehören ein zuverlässiger Wetterbericht, Prognosemodelle für den Sporenflug oder Sporenfallen, die noch während der Regenzeit gezählt werden. Das Video stellt eine Vielzahl von Präparaten vor, die im ökologischen Landbau eingesetzt werden können, sowie deren Vor- und Nachteile.

Teaser:Control strategies for apple scab.
What problem does the tool address?:Apple scab is the most common disease of the apple tree. Organic fruit growers have only limited direct crop protection measures at their disposal. However, not all varieties are equally susceptible. In addition to scab-susceptible varieties, there are also resistant and robust varieties. However, there is a risk that these varieties will lose their resistance.
What solution does the tool offer?:To reduce the pressure of infestation, sanitary measures must be implemented in a professional organic apple cultivation.
