    John, I appreciate your comments.
    Couple of questions;
    1. How old is the Vernia block your referring to ?
    2. What is your program on the rest of the grove, where you have canker and where you don’t have canker ?

    Thanks, Jerry

    The Vernia block was planted March 2003.

    The rest of the grove receives five to six sprays per year. Blocks with active Canker have the Copper and Serenade with each spray that is during a susceptible period for example during growth flush.
