Hagan, Plant Pathology and Nematology Specialist, Alabama Cooperative Extension Service, Auburn University; C. H. Gilliam, Associate Professor of Horticulture, Department of Horticulture, Auburn University; and J. M. Mullen, Extension Associate-Plant Pathology, Alabama Cooperative Extension Service, Auburn University, Auburn 36849. Plant Dis. 69:684-685. Accepted for publication 2 February 1985.

Weekly foliar applications of triforine at 0.240.48 g a.i./L of water or thiophanate-methyl + zinc ion + maneb at 1.35 g a.i./L of water provided excellent protection of Photinia fraseri against leaf spot caused by Entomosporium maculatum. Weekly treatments of chlorothalonil (1.35 g a.i./L) or vinclozolin (0.90 g a.i./L)were less effective. Triadimefon (0.30 g a.i./L) and propiconazole (0.28 g a.i./L) controlled the disease but were phytotoxic. Iprodione, copper hydroxide, benomyl, and mancozeb were ineffective.
