What is best for lime trees? Copper Fungicide of Lime Sulphur?

I have peach, necatarine, mandarin, lemon trees. I have read that copper fungicide is to be used to prevent leaf curl which I had last year. Do I use this as well as lime sulphur or only the copper fungicide on the fruit trees. Thank you for your help.

Fruit and Citrus • Diseases

Hi Julie,

Thank you for contacting Yates. We would recommend using Yates Leaf Curl Copper Fungicide Spray as a preventative spray for leaf curl on your stone fruits e.g. nectarines, peaches, apricots, plums etc. In reference to citrus fruits like mandarins and lemons, they are not affected with leaf curl disease. Please ensure you have read and understood all label directions before using the product. Hope this information is helpful, if you have further queries do let us know. Kind regards, Eric Yates Horticulturalist
