If you are trying to be all "organic", use seaweed in all your waterings and sprays.  This will provide some Copper and Zinc, etc.  Some kinds of rock dusts would also help.  Some chelated products and some complexed products are also labeled for use in organic production.

I don't see any indication of Mango Bacterial Black Spot (MBBS). 
[Bacterial black spots on other plants are usually other species of bacteria, which tend to be host specific, so we should not leave off the word "mango" in the name.]

I've foliage fed with southern ag citric micro-nutrients and sul-mag-po to the soil cause that's what i have. not all 'organic' at all.

You're like me, you use the best approach keeping your personal health in mind and not taking risks.  I have had no luck with Southern Ag foliar treatments.  I have with Keyplex 350DP.  That is some miracle stuff especially with chlorosis prone material like Flying Dragon citrus rootstock which has a terrible time uptaking or processing micros.

BTW, if you're not adding a surfactant to your sprays, you're wasting your time.

Mark, you mean any product or just some of them? For example, we must add surfactant to seaweed or phytohormones too?

No, only sprays - herbicides, pesticides.  It's a spreader-sticker and the product becomes rainfast.  I use NIS aka non-ionic surfactant.

I've got 2 Keitt trees with a bad case of MBBS
Just about all the fruit is split and diease ..
If I severely prune it back , taking all leaves off would this help? Or will the MBBS come back?
If I top work the tree, would this also be infected?

I severely pruned mine, and it came back :-(. Now my other keitt has it too. You should be able to top work, as the disease is not systemic as far as I know.

Can someone please shed a light on what's going on with this little Pickering Tree? It looks healthy until you see that part of the bark is gone —everything is dry, no gummosis or something of that nature. Have you experienced the same issue? should I keep it or get rid of it now that it's just a little over 2' tall?

Thanks for your input!!

Could be sunburn or chafing injury. I would leave it and let it heal.

Looks as though someone did a bud graft, which then died.  I hope that wasn't the 'Pickering'--- if it was, then the rest is probably Turpentine.

That damage looks to be above the graft and tbose leaves are definitely that of  Pickering.

I had a ground squirrel chew my young cado, stone fruit, and mango branches, in one instance, it chewed my grafted mango right above the graft, it was pushing and then it stalled. I was pissed and wanted to yank it. it had less than 1/3rd branch left and it was 1/4" thick to begin with. In 3 weeks I see it pushing hard again and the wound is fattening and healing.

may be it will work out, not sure in the long run if that tree would be strong enough.
