Recommended spray for Botrytis on citrus

Large lemon tree is severely effected by Botrytis ( Based on previous Yates query advice ) I have Yates Fungus Fighter Copper Fungicide and Yates Lime Sulfur on hand, are these suitable for spraying or can you recommend suitable spray. Tree is currently loaded with lemons and there is new flowering coming through.

Hi Jack,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Unfortunately, we do not have any registered product for control of Botrytis on citrus. It is best to prune off the most affected branches after fruiting. It will also help to thin out the crown to increase air circulation to reduce the infection.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.
