    Q
    Should you soak tomato plant seedlings in agri-fos before planting?
    On the Paul Parent Garden Club radio show, he promotes soaking tomato plant seedlings in a solution of agri-foe to give them a head-start against disease, then treating with a similar solution, but in both spray and root application every two weeks or so. What's your take?
    A
    Agri-Fos is both a curative and preventative treatment and can be applied as a soil drench, foliar spray, soil incorporation, bare root dip, or a seedling soak.

    Q
    I'm looking for a product that can be applied as a soil drench to control fire blight on ornamental pears.

    Unfortunately, there really are no products that are labeled for a soil drench application for fire blight.  A product like Monterey Garden Phos Systemic Fungicide can be used as a foliar spray.  There is a helpful article you can find here with more information on treating for fire blight.

    Q
    Will Monterey Agri-Fos Systemic Fungicide control the seridium cankor on my leyland cypress trees?
    I have 14 leyland cypress trees that became infected last year with seridium cankor. A tree expert examined my trees. The trees are 25 ft. tall. Thanks for the help.
    A

    Multiple university studies show that there are no current known fungicide treatments that are effective for controlling seridium canker in Leyland Cypress. Rather, good cultural practices and planting disease-resistant plants are recommended. Leyland Cypress have a shallow root system, so they will be more susceptible to disease when under drought stress. It is also important to prune any infected branches and to sanitize pruning tools after use. Here is more information from the Kent State Cooperative Extension about Leyland Cypress in your area.

    I have an orange tree and was told this would help with yellowing leaves. The tree is 4 feet tall with a 3-1/2" trunk diameter. How much product per gallon should I use and what is the frequency?
    A

    Monterey Garden Phos Systemic Fungicide can be applied as a foliar spray to mature citrus trees at 1 tsp. per gallon of water. When conditions favor disease, spray trees to runoff.

    Q
    Will Agri-Fos help stop fungus already on a willow tree, that appears to have dead branches on half the tree.
    Or is there any product to help on this? The tree is six years old.
    A
    The first thing you should do is get the tree examined by a trained arborist. The arborist will be able to tell you what type of disease/fungus the tree has and whether or not it can be saved. Fungicides in general work best as a preventative or when used right at the beginning of the disease.

    Q
    Will Monterey Agri-Fos Systemic Fungicide work for downy mildew on basil plants?
    There is a study from the University of Minnesota extension recommending K-Phite (phosphorous acid) to treat it. I believe that your product meets that description. I see nothing on the label about it.
    A

    Monterey Agri-Fos Systemic Fungicide is not labeled to be applied to basil. We do carry a product that can be applied to herbs for controlling downey mildew. It is called Fertilome Triple Action Plus. Please refer to the product label for mixing and application instructions as well as harvest times.

  • Asked by Annette from Cypress, Ca

    Q
    What is the mixing ratio of Monterey Garden Phos Systemic Fungicide to do a soil drench for avocado tree with root rot?
    A

    When using Monterey Garden Phos Systemic Fungicide for root rot on avocado trees, the methods to treat are either a tree injection or a foliar spray. For a tree injection, you will inject trees at spring flush maturity. Repeat treatment in February or March. Drill holes 3/16 inch (5 mm) in diameter and 1 inch (25 mm) to 2 inches (50 mm) deep with slight downward angle in trunk. Place syringes in the main trunk of the tree and space evenly around the circumference of the trunk. Suitable for use with Chemjet tree injectors, Ag-murf gun, or hydraulic tree injection. Do not prune back trees before injection process as burning of new growth may occur. Do not inject trees in winter months. Do not cut back the canopy of injected trees. Do not add any other material, other than water , to AGRI-FOS Systemic Fungicide by trunk injection. Do not inject more liquid in a lesser number of syringes than directed. The rates for application are as follows:

    Skeletal trees 1st year: ¼ fl. oz. undiluted product per yard of canopy diameter.
    Other situations: 1/8 fl. oz. diluted with ½ fl. oz. of water per yard of canopy diameter.

    For a foliar spray, the mixing rate is 1/3 fl oz per gallon of water. You will spray to run off at 2 – 2½ gallons of spray solution per adult tree. Start applications in spring, up to 4 applications a year at two-month intervals. Ensure thorough coverage.
