B.
In a cooler region in Gippsland, Vic. my nectarine and peach trees have bad curly leaf disease.

I am trying to grow my fruit trees with Bio dynamic principles in mind, and this curly leaf disease is a big problem. Last year I had the same problem and the trees didnt grow because I cut off all the leaves that were sick. Now all are budding / flowering [October] what can I use to heal the trees? Thank you kindly.

Answer: To prevent leaf curl disease in stone fruit trees, Yates Leaf Curl Copper fungicide should be applied at budswell.
Timing is important, so if the spray is overlooked at budswell you will have to wait until the following year before applying protective measures.
