Abstract

Shothole disease is most damaging on almonds and early-flowering peaches and apricots but can also affect nectarines, plums and cherries.

The causal fungus IStigmina carpophila) survives the summer in infected buds and twig cankers.

The autumn rains then stimulate production of spores which infect other twigs, buds and subsequently the new spring growth.
