Most growers are in the midst of fruitworm and fungicide spraying. The week is looking to be either windy and then pretty hot, so grab whatever spray window you can get.

Most growers have put out their first fruitworm sprays by now or will be doing so this weekend.  Altacor is the best choice for early fruitworm sprays and Delegate or Diazinon are the preferred compounds for later fruitworm sprays....
