Technical Abstract: Phosphite fungicides are used to manage pecan scab (caused by Fusicladium effusum), the most economically destructive disease of pecan in the Southeast US. The EU has imposed a minimum residue limit (MRL) on these fungicides in pecan kernels. Data shows that the phosphite residue exceeds the 2 ppm MRL in most samples tested. The value and use of phosphites for disease control in pecan are discussed in light of the MRL issue.
