Note: Not all indicated timings may be necessary for disease control.
|Disease||Dormant||Early bloom||Mid-bloom||Late bloom||Preharvest||Postharvest|
|Alternaria fruit rot (black heart)||—||+1||+||+||—||—|
|Gray mold (Botrytis fruit rot)||—||ND||ND||ND||+2||+++|
|Rating: +++ = most effective, ++ = moderately effective, + = inconsistently effective, ---- = ineffective, and ND= no data.|
|1||Pomegranates have a long protracted bloom, thus apply when conditions are favorable for disease (i.e., wet conditions).|
|2||Preharvest treatments are highly variable in efficacy due to difficulty in fungicide coverage into the fruit "crown".|
