Triazicide damage apricot?

Posted by ltilton 5 (My Page) on

OK, I admit I overcoddle my apricots. I managed to kill one once by spraying it with I know not what.

But last week I sprayed the stone fruits against PC, and within a day or two I saw some of the leaves curling inward along the longitudinal axis. Now I see some burning on the margins of a few leaves.

There's nothing like this going on on the apricot I didn't spray because it's not fruiting, or on the aprium. Could it be the triazicide?

Yes it certainly could be. I've seen leaf damage from liquid insecticides. It may be the non active ingredients needed to make a good spray solution more so than the active ingredient.

I assume that's why proper dosage is very important.

RE: Triazicide damage apricot?

Very true, ramble. More isn't always better.

I REALLY don't want to kill another apricot. They seem particularly susceptible.

I just sprayed my Harglow Apricot last week after 70% petal fall ( ( also mixed a bit of Immunox in the batch). All is well. I just followed the directions on the bottle. The only thing I see happening are the very fine cob webs on the tree (all trees). I thought triazicide killed insects 'upon contact'. Not all insects I guess. Mrs. G
