Apple tree spraying
Hello, I am in Mechanicsville, MD and have 2 apple trees I am trying to bring back to healthy production. I have cut back all the excess growth and now I am wondering how, what and when to fertilize and spray. Thanks

Look at our website for information on tree fruit and apples. You will find fertilization recommendations http://extension.umd.edu/growit/fruits/apples
Apples are susceptible to several insect and disease problems. Look at our website for more information and common problems. Some issues may be environmental or cultural in nature. You need to know what you are spraying for. If you have a current pest or disease problem, you should plan for preventative treatments. Look at General Disease Recommendations https://extension.umd.edu/growit/fruit-general-disease-and-insect-pest-control-recommendations and the VA Tech Sprau Schedule https://extension.umd.edu/growit/home-fruit-preventative-spray-schedule-and-management-common-proble...
Excellent, Thank you!
