I live in Taif in Saudi Arabai. It is rainy from May to September ( on and off ) .we have a garden of pomegranate . The problem every year that when the fruits get ripe, some get black powder fungus infection , some get gray white paste inside , and some dark brown rotten inside , and some get broken skin . We use insecticide and fungicide . I think probably we are not using the right control and probably the timing of control is not right . Also please advice me on Botrytis fungus control in pomegranate . Thanks .

Here is a recipe I like to use. It is safe for all plants, at any time. This has helped me cure Fungal, bacterial, and insect problems. You don't have to use every ingredient, but it is really powerful when you do.
First, you will want to prime the ground with dolomitic lime, then spread wettable sulfur to Kill off any infection in the soil. I Also like to spray the plant itself. Mix a few drops of one or more of these ingredients into warm water with a spoonful of coconut oil: Rosemary oil, lavender oil, neem oil, garlic oil, cinnamon extract/oil and for really bad cases, also add clove oil.
