Medium_armillaria_luteobubalina_infection Treatment of armillaria root rot

I have diagnosed Armillaria luteobubalina in my garden which attacked many old remnant small limbs of heavily pruned Azaleas. Suddenly I had a burst of the 'mushroom' phase of the fungi all over the place!

There is one mature (3.5 m high), precious dogwood in the garden that had a very small infestation around the root collar.

I have done some research and found that 'root collar excavation' might help save it. Can you suggest any Yates products that might stave off the inevitable attack of this nasty fungus? If so, could you also direct me to the methods of application for these products.

Further, could you also recommend any others that might also be used as a preventative to safeguard against attacks on my other trees.

Many thanks

Answer: Hi Mitchell,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Unfortunately, we haven’t got any products registered against this disease. Yates anti rot is only registered for Phytophthora root rot. You may have to check with Arborists who can assist you further with advanced trees as they have the products that you may need for your plants.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
