Thanks for posting. it was really interesting. I noted they were using proteins to combat fungi. You can also combat mildew with milk. If it’s sprayed on at bud break the tree remains free for the whole year, but if only sprayed on when mildew is found, it holds it back. It’s best sprayed weekly for a month or so then fortnightly until leaf fall.
As usual we have to wonder if the same thing would be beneficial in a bonsai container or detrimental.
I work at UCR so maybe I can be a lab rat? or a lab tree? lol
That’s probably an easy ask too
