How do you treat mango anthracnose?
Post-harvest treatments are available for control of anthracnose in mango fruit. Prochloraz is used as a cold non- recirculating spray. Hot water dips used to control fruit flies will also control anthracnose and stem end rots. Hot benomyl dips will control anthracnose and are useful where stem end rots are a problem.
Why are my tree branches turning black?
You are probably describing sooty mold fungus. This is a minor fungus that grows on the syrupy excretions of some insects that feed on trees. The fungus does little physical damage to the tree unless it is so severe that leaves coated with sooty mold cannot photosynthesize and create food for the tree.

Which fungicide best for mango anthracnose?
The fungicides prochloraz/Octave®, mancozeb/Bryzeb® and azoxystrobin/Amistar® which are all currently registered for control of anthracnose in mango were effective in suppressing the growth of all isolates tested. Other fungicides namely chlorothalonil/Bravo®, thiram/Thiragran® and captan/Captan® were also effective.

The disease is fostered by rainy conditions and heavy dews.
What is anthracnose on mango trees?
Symptoms of anthracnose appear as black irregularly shaped lesions that gradually become larger and cause leaf spot, bloom blight, fruit staining and rot – resulting in non fruiting mango trees. It is best to plant an anthracnose resistant variety of mango tree in full sun where rainfall will quickly evaporate to avoid this problem.
