Black banded disease on mango?
« on: March 18, 2019, 06:54:11 PM »
This just popped up a week ago and has gotten a lot worse lately. From my research it seems like it is black banded disease? I have never seen this before? Any insite on what it could be and a way of dealing with it?

Itís all over south Florida now.

Just another in a steady parade of diseases attacking mango in Florida now. Luckily this one is relatively benign/irrelevant, if ugly looking. Easy to treat if you feel it necessary.

I feel like itís Only a matter of time before we get Seca.

From what I see you just spray copper on it? I would rather it not spread to my other mango tree.

Copper might clear it up on its own but Iíd Rotate with a non-copper fungicide as well, should clear up by summer.

Honestly Iím not even attempting to control this one right now.

Thanks for the ID on this one. I've had this for 2 - 3 years and never really knew what it was. Figured it was benign though.

Yeah I only found sort of useful information on this site:
https://mangifera.org/disease.php

There really does not seem to be much information on this. But I am happy that you guys notice that it does not actually cause any issues, besides it being ugly.

Something similar is on my Glenn tree (over a year now). Doesn't seem to be a problem, but keeping an eye on it.
