 On the weekend of April 10 we received about 1.5 inches of rain. No one is complaining because every drop of water is counted as a blessing.  However, warm spring rains have their consequences. In mature orchards I am seeing a lot of spur die back. This is probably caused by Brown Rot fungus (Monilinia spp.) or Botrytis spp.
More rain is predicted for the coming weekend and possibly on and off through next week so in many orchards fungicides are being applied.
