my son has a bismark large palm on the gold coast that is showing signs of dying new crown growth.
it was transplanted about a year or so ago and flourished. It is planted into the sand about 1 m above the water table but the recent floods will have caused this to rise will your anti rot assist this palm?
Root rots are spread through water, and are favoured in water logged conditions. A signs of a root rot in palms is browning and wilting of the spear-leaf/youngest-leaf and the nearby leaves. If the issue has been caused by a phytophthera root rot, Yates Anti Rot Phosacid Systemic Fungicide will assist as a treatment. If waterlogged conditions are expected, we recommend using this product as preventative spray.
