Ant control on fruit trees

I found this article in the internet and i think i might be interested, but i don't have a clue if what i'm reading is a fake or not, so that's why i'm posting it here.

The article is something like this:

"Some years ago, a fruit tree owner discovered the source of some major diseases attacking his trees. He applied a product on the trees, to prevent this from happening again. Two years later, another problem occurred, and he again applied a product. Four years later, a third major problem occurred. The same problem. How is that possible?"

The fruit tree owner is now ready to buy a product that will protect his fruit trees from a third major problem. His problem is that he knows exactly what product is on the market and how much it costs. He is wondering if there is a cheaper way of preventing the major problem, before it occurs. Can anyone tell him what's the real purpose of this product?

i dont know how you came up with this idea but what you're doing is totally against the purpose of any good plant disease prevention because you apply a product on the tree to prevent the disease from attacking the tree and not the disease, what you're actually doing is you're just making sure that the disease stays on the soil and in the air, and it will stay there until it's time to take care of the disease and do something about it... in this case, you're making sure that the fruit will remain unharmed, which you want, because you're willing to pay for a product to do it.

The idea of preventing diseases with such product on the tree itself isn't only a bad idea, it's a very harmful idea because if you have it you could suffer the consequences

To put it in other words, you're not preventing anything, you're just making sure that your problem, in case it happens again, will be a lot bigger and that you won't see it coming... it doesn't mean that you are going to prevent a problem from happening at all, it's just going to create a bigger problem later... at the end, I'm telling you, because I don't want to be responsible for the kind of tree you're growing, because I don't want to create any kind of problem for you.

You are talking about preventing the problems of having a disease which you need to treat, not preventing the disease itself, but a problem which could have been avoided with a plant disease prevention method... and again, the product you need to choose is not preventing a disease, but preventing a problem that could have been prevented, so it won't happen again

I didn't know that, but now that I do, the choice is easy, isn't it?

I do like this idea though, how could I apply it? And will it really work for all diseases and all trees?

I do know a few techniques for controlling things like that, like how to deal with fungal infections, and that usually involve different things, some of which can't be done with a tree disease prevention method (like some of the fungal infections, for example)... I don't know if those techniques can work for all diseases or all trees, but what I can say is that, when working with diseases, these techniques are pretty successful.

The one I remember, is about using the right fertilizer. It's not a tree disease prevention method, but you can use it with trees too, to reduce a problem.

If you look at the fertilizer bags, you'll see that some of them have special instructions on them. Some of those instructions have to do with diseases.

Well, this is another one of those subjects which is difficult to study... It takes a lot of experience and a lot of patience, and you have to know the subject, as it's complex.But the fact is that it's very hard to learn all that there is to know, if you only consider that.

But if you think of people who are well-informed and do their research, they do tend to know a lot about a lot of subjects... so in a way, that does help in the process.

It's not like a subject that you have to be a genius or something like that, but just the fact that it takes so much to know about it... If you look at my profile on this site, you'll see that I have a lot of things there. In some subjects, I had to study a lot to really be able to say a lot about them. But in others, it's easy.

You just have to decide what is the most important, and keep going until you learn all the rest.

I don't know how much time it will take you, but the more you learn about what it is you want to learn, the more comfortable you'll be in doing that, and the more able you'll be to learn a lot about the subjects you've decided to learn.

That's basically what my experience has taught me so far. I'd say, don't take your time with learning everything in the world. Do your research and your preparation... but don't take forever.

So, I'll recommend you start out by learning the subjects that are absolutely necessary for you to study, and get a grasp of it. I know that if I study hard, and prepare well, I'll be able to do a lot in my life.

Thanks for asking...

You know, the thing is, I'm a real slow learner. I actually have an IQ in the 99th percentile, but my reading speed is slow. Because of this, I find the need to take time, and do things in small portions.

That's pretty much how I feel, but I would like to learn more things. I've already come to the conclusion that there's so much in this world that I have yet to learn, and there are all sorts of interesting things that I would like to find out.

For me, I would rather learn a lot in one month,
