I live in the province of Pangasinan, Philippines. We have only two seasons...hot and dry, and humid/rainy. It is now mostly dry, but cooler at nighttime (about 70-75 degrees Fahrenheit) and in the high 80's during the day. I would welcome any suggestions to save my papaya trees from black spot! Thanks!

Wet weather and poor air circulation favor the black spot disease. The disease can be controlled by spraying mancozeb (200g/100 liters or as recommended on registered product). It should be applied from flowering at 28 days interval. You can shorten the spray interval to 14 days if the disease is severe.
