Addressing Pestalotiopsis on Florida Strawberries

Many strawberry production areas in Florida are currently experiencing a massive outbreak of Pestalotiopsis. With many reporting signs of the fungus throughout the state in late December, Pestalotiopsis results in severe crop damage, exhibiting symptoms such as leaf spot and fruit rot. If not controlled, the fungus, like many fungal pathogens, can develop spores and spread by water, resulting in devastating crop loss.
