“Boll rot,” or “anthracnose,” is a disease which may at times be sufficiently serious to destroy from 10 to 50% of the crop.
The leaves would dry up and the berries become small and crumbly when affected by anthracnose.
A few sorts rather commonly grown in home vineyards, as Diamond, Brighton and Agawam, suffer most from anthracnose.
The gray bark disease and anthracnose, also snowy tree cricket and red-necked cane borer, are controlled in this way.
The vines are resistant to mildew, black-rot, and anthracnose and are strong, vigorous growers.
Albert, fearful of his beans becoming affected by spots or anthracnose, sprayed them from the start.
