Leaf Spot Diseases
Two leaf spot diseases periodical
ly cause serious losses in North
Carolina's strawberry crop, but both
can be controlled by one of three
simple practices, says Dr. Luther
Shaw, plant pathologist of the State
college extension service.
To. explain these control mea
sures, as well as symptoms and
Other valuable information about
the diseases, Dr. Shaw has pre
pared a publication for general
distribution to interested growers.
It is Extension Circular No. 236,
"Control of Leaf Spot and Scorch
of Strawberries," and it is available
free upon request to the Agricul
tural Editor at State College, Ral
eigh. One of the diseases is known as
common leaf spot, but sometimes
is called "r.ust" or "bird's eye
spot." It appears on the leaves in
the form of spots with a reddish
or purplish tint, but as they in
crease in size the center of each
spot becomes paler, and finally gray
or almost white.
Scorch appears on the leaves as
minute purplish discolorations on
the upper surface. They enlarge
rapidly and become brownish. Les
ions on fruit and leaf stems are
similar in appearance and can be
recognized by the presence of
elongated, sunken reddish areas or
streaks. The most serious manifes-,
tation of scorch is. that on the
calyx or - "cap" of the fruit. This
