Apple Tree Fungicide - Knowledgebase Question

Question by jessmarroyo

I purchased Daconil for several different trees, but when I read the directions, it doesn't say whether I can use it on my apple trees. Is it safe/ good for apple trees? If so, how should I apply it? And if not, what should I use?

Daconil (chlorothalonil)is a multipurpose garden fungicide. It is registered for use against apple scab so you can apply it to your apple trees if you've had problems with scab or leaf spots in the past. The label suggests spraying when the leaves are beginning to unfold and repeating every 7 to 10 days until two weeks after petal-fall.
