Brownish matty structure in Litchi leaves

Posted in

In Litchi leaves the velvety brown structure is due to joint intervention of a mite, Aceria litchii and a parasitic alga, Cephaleuros virescence Kunze.

This can be controlled with the application of Dicofol (Kelthane/ Hilofol @ 3 ml/lt water) followed by Bavistin 1.5 gm/lt water.
