Cucurbit Downy Mildew Update – August 20, 2010

Bob Mulrooney, Extension Plant Pathologist; bobmul@udel.edu

The forecast for downy continues to be moderate to low for most of Delaware and the eastern shore. Maintain fungicide programs to protect cucurbits from infection by downy mildew. This time of year it begins to move to pumpkin, winter and summer squash, cantaloupe and watermelon. For more information on the forecast see the website http://cdm.ipmpipe.org.
