Among its many uses are applications in fall to control the overwintering fire blight inoculum in pears and apples, leaf curl and shot hole pathogens in peach and nectarine, downy mildew and powdery mildew fungi in grapes, peacock spot pathogen in olives, walnut blight bacteria in walnut, and black spot fungus in roses. Because Bordeaux colors the sprayed plants blue and may discolor house paint, it is not used as often on ornamental plants as it is on trees, vines, or agricultural plants.
