I have a copper based fungicide, and a sulfur based fungicide. Both claim to
be the definitive cure for peach leaf curl. Does anyone know which works
better, or if both are equally effective? Last year my peaches had peach
leaf curl quite severly. I'd like to prevent it from happening this year.

The way you made me take photos of my cuts which you not only ignored,
but you didn't honor your word which was that you'd put them on the
front page of your website. Oh, I forgot, you told me you lost them.
Wassa matta, I made proper cuts and you couldn't stand it?
I told you I would like to see some dissections that the cuts were hard for
me to see without dissections. Did you see the squirrel section I did
Ok, I told you if you provided me with some pictures of target pruning with
a good response from the tree I would put one on the front page of website.
Probably my pruning section. You sent me some pictures of some large cuts
with woundwood that was in the form of a doughnut. Due to my inexperience I
was unable to fully understand that cut. Therefore, without a dissection it
would be hard for me to say. Not to say you did something wrong, but I
could not place it on the front page and describe it because I was not sure.
Now, I was not sure of a cut I made on a peach tree so I dissected it.
It was a proper cut but you can see the symplastless column that formed
below the wound. The column is the size of the tree when it was pruned.
The point of this picture is to show that with peach trees, even proper
targets can lead to symplastless columns. When space is reduced for storage
of starch with proper cuts, guess how bad improper cuts are for the trees
capacity to store energy? Well that's why I asked Zootal for some pictures
of his pruning cuts and soil management, trunk flare area and such to
diagnose what the primary cause of the trees problem is. When energy
reserves are reduced, secondary agents move in. Then often people use
questionable chemicals to get rid of the secondary agents. In advanced tree
biology the secondaries are referred to as the 'Clean-Up Crew".
Back to your pictures. It was not clear to me by your pictures, as to how
much of a direct hit the pruning cut was. If you can provide me with
something I can better understand I would be glad to use it. Why don't you
come visit me and dig mycorrhizae. I have microscopes, digging tools,
scanner, trees with mycorrhizae. All I require is people like you to dig
and identify mycorrhizae. Just an invitation. Please, place some of your
pictures of this and that on a website and I will go through and find
something I can use. Again, I cannot say I am sorry enough for not
understanding the pictures you sent me.
As far as questionable chemicals, this thread started with (copper based
fungicide, and a sulfur based fungicide) many comments were made about the
chemicals and they were endorsed by people in this tread without even seeing
the patient. I asked for some pictures of soil and pruning cuts and no one
was interested. Everybody was pushing for using questionable chemicals
without diagnosis. If you disagree please provide the specific active and
inert ingredients you were recommending.
Yap, yap, yap. You can't resist, can you? Even when you tell someone
you've KFd them, you STILL can't resist answering every single post they
make. Maybe Buddha will call you home soon -- and then kick your ass for
giving the religion a bad image.

I don't have anyone killfiled, what are you talking about now? Buddha
doesn't call anyone home. That's what happens in other religions, not
Buddhism. Before you use something against someone, you should at
least now what you are talking about. If I'm not wrong, it is YOU who
inserted yourself into this discussion or lack of discussion. YOU
can't resist, not me. I don't make claims like you do. But, you can
always ignore me if you want. I give you permission. I know how
fragile you are. Go read a book. It may do you some good.
