Can Yates Lime Sulphur be used to remove Dragon fruit plant rust? If so, what is the recommended application?

Fruit and Citrus • Diseases

Hi Joe, 

Thank you for contacting Yates.

The product Lime Sulphur is registered to control rust for tomatoes and vegetables but not dragon fruit plant, hence we are unable to recommend such an application and guarantee the control result. It would be best to remove the most affected leaves, increase ventilation and re-mulch the soil to help reduce the number of fungal pathogens. 


Hope this helps and happy gardening :)
