Field applications of the fungicides captan or thiram, for control of Botrytis, fruit rot of strawberries, resulted in yield increases of 333 to 388 crates per acre of marketable fruit, in recent Monterey County tests. The fungicides also reduced the amount of fruit rot in storage by 22 to 34 per cent as compared with fruit from check plots.
