Lauro with oidium: Answer: White Mal on the Laurel
Egr. Mr. Crabu
Thank you for contacting us. About the problem that affects your plants.
The Oidium commonly called "white mal" for the typical manifestation of the fungus given by the white mold is one of the typical malattatte of the species and of the similar Lauroceraso particularly in wet years.
The products commonly used for the fight against this fungus are based on sulfur, however it is necessary to take into account the classical agronomic interventions such as pruning and settling of the soil.
If the infestation is very rooted, we advise to intervene in time (raising temperatures) and cadence at 15 days in the spring period.
Asking you to follow the recommendations of use that you will find on the label,
