Sick Mango Tree

    4 responses

Jomango starts with ...
My dwarf Irwin Mango tree is sick sick sick! The pannicles (?) Earlier in the year looked like these do now. All the buds dropped off. I did spray with copper sulphate (the white blotches you see on the leaves). I would appreciate any tips on getting my 5yr old tree back to health. It is grown next to Bananas would this have any influence? Something invisible is also eating lots of this trees leaves. Maybe grasshoppers at night?

It looks like Anthracnose, I spray once every month when in flower alternate with Copper sulphate and Mancozeb plus.
No idea on what is eating them.

Thanl you Ibis I've applied more copper spray and will also mancozeb it too. I see on another forum that possums like the leaves so I reckon this could be a possibility. I also found a large grub in a cocoon with other webbing aroubd so maybe anorher culprit. Thanks for your reply.

Hi
I have 3 KP mango trees and the two in my back yard are sick and won’t grow. They’ve a all been in the ground the same amount of time they get fed and watered the same. I have sprayed them all for anthracnose but these look terrible and aren’t showing much new growth. The leaves on one are sickly yellow and no growth at all and the the other has curled small leave and minimal growth. My soul is alkaline. The 3rd mango is growing and flowering beautifully, but it’s in the front yard. IM thinking it could be too much wind over winter but should I bother screening it now we’re in spring in WA?? What else could be wrong? please help?!

Hi Jaimie your major problem is alkaline soil. Spray the trees with a trace element spray. You can get trace element sprays which are ok to use if the tree is in flower these days. You can also poor iron chelates around the tree. Lots of animal manures (no chicken)and pea straw.
Funny thing my trees died in the back yard and the one in my front yard is fantastic - full of flowers this year.
I think maybe it has to do with air movement, not as humid in my front yard. So far neighbours haven't pinched my fruit!
