Botrytis infection.

Management strategy
A crop suited only to the dry or very dry areas of the province to control not only Botrytis, but Ascochyta as well.

Ascochyta Blight
Ascochyta rabiei

Under wet or humid growing conditions this drought tolerant crop may be 100% lost even with up to six or seven fungicides applications during the growing season.
