Phos-Inject is a systemic fungicide for the control of Phytophthora Root Rot in avocado, root & collar rot in ornamental plants and citrus, and downy mildew in grapes.
Phos-Inject also protects plants against Phytophthora dieback (Jarrah dieback). This product works by boosting the plants own natural defences. This allows plants to survive in infested bushland.
This product does not kill of the fungus, it works by helping the plant to fight it off. For this reason it is not as effective in controlling conifer/ cypress canker (dieback), however it has been shown to be effective if the fungus has not taken hold strongly and symptoms are mild.
How To Treat
Branches should be removed 10 cm below the affected area and cankers on trunks can be removed where the size of the affected area is not too large. The diseased area should be surgically removed with a scalpel under sanitary conditions, this wound should then be sealed with a resin. The tree should then be injected with Phos-Inject using an Injector Syringe.
