Leaf Spot

Leaf Spot is a commonly used descriptor for identifying many plant diseases. In larger clusters or rows, leaf spot can also be known as anthracnose or canker.

 

Leaves infected with leaf spot will yellow and may drop prematurely. The fungal blight can sustain itself and reproduce in the dead debris of the plant. Using a product such as Safer® Brand Garden Fungicide will quickly eliminate leaf spot and bring health back to your plants!

Characteristics

Leaf Spots are typically brown, but depending on the type of fungus, the spot could also be tan or black. Concentric rings or dark margins around the spot may also be present. Over time the spots can group together to form blotches and sometimes they are formed in angular patterns on the plant.

 

Using a product such as Safer® Brand Garden Fungicide will prevent further spread and actually eliminate the leaf spot all together!
