But if you’re not inclined
I agree with Jon and David Doud. A dry year with no crop will knock down the
initial inoculum this coming year, decreasing brown rot pressure at the start

you get as dry as it gets in Riverside on a hot day, it may indeed kill off the
epiphytic bacteria, and make further transmission difficult. Today and tomorrow

associated with it, so we blame it on bad horticulture and call it a
“physiological disorder”. It’s interesting that zinc and ziram applied in the
