The Keeping Quality Forecast for June 2006 is for FAIR keeping quality.
We calculated 4 of a possible 16 points to arrive at this forecast. This is the first year we have had so few points since 2002 (when we had one point!). We were awarded 2 points for March sunshine, 1 point for March precipitation, and 1 point for April precipitation. This is a year that you should not reduce your fungicide rates and/or the number of fungicide applications. However, if you have a bed that had late water held this spring, you can reduce your fungicide inputs in that situation.
