Abstract

Effect of four non-chemical sanitation treatments was evaluated on spring and autumn leaf infection by Venturia inaequalis and on leaf litter degradation in two high-density organic apple orchards (Eperjeske and Debrecen-Józsa, Hungary) on two moderately scab-susceptible apple cultivars ('Jonathan' and 'El-star') from 2001 to 2003. The sanitation treatments were: removal of fallen leaves, disc cultivation, shredding, and covering the orchard floor with plastic foils. At both locations and in both years, all treatments significantly (P
