I sprayed my rose bushes with it because they had developed a fungus and I had to remove all the infected leaves with black spots. My rose was almost bare. After spraying only once no new leaves became infected and now new leaf growth started.

I used a spray on my plants...baking soda, small amount of vegtable oil and dish soap. Can I use defender now as well? I noticed it says not to use after an oil treatment.We do not recommend using oil and sulfur together as it will heighten phytotoxicity and could harm the plants.Date published: 2017-01-05

All About...Plant Diseases
Numerous strains of fungi are commonly referred to as Powdery Mildew. Since this disease removes essential nutrients from the plant, leaves may become yellow, stunted or drop off prematurely.
Roses, especially hybrid tea roses, are highly susceptible to this infectious fungal disease. Black spots, as the name implies, will appear on the leaves, followed by a yellowing surrounding the spots.
