Sorry if this is a duplication: I tried attaching Art Burrell’s discussion of 
sulfur sprays with the following message, but I think that made the message 
size too large for this list-serve.

I can only reprint what Dr. Art Burrell said in 1945 at the 90th Annual Meeting 
of the New York State Horticultural Society:  “Let us assume that, when the 
weather has cleared and the trees have blown dry, we find on Mills’ chart that 
they have been wet long enough to have permitted scab infection, and we still 
have trees that were not protected [by sulfur sprays discussed earlier]. This 
is where lime sulfur 2-100 comes in. We must wait until the leaves have become 
dry, because in a soaked condition, they are especially subject to burning.”

Does anyone have enough experience with liquid lime sulfur to comment on it as 
an emergency
choice for application before rains have stopped during the current long 
infection period?  It is listed as
having 72-96 hours back-action in the New England Tree Fruits Management Guide.
In my particular situation, Half-Inch Green stage tissues were exposed many 
hours during two of
the previous three nights to 18-20 degrees F, and are probably extra sensitive 
to captan penetration
and phytotoxicity.
