ALERT: Downy Mildew of Cucurbit May Soon be in Georgia
Downy mildew has been detected in North Florida. Weather conditions have been favorable for downy mildew infection in southern Georgia particularly in cucumber and squash. It is the matter of time when it will show up in our southern counties. Hence, I would suggest our cucurbit growers to look for the downy mildew symptoms in their fields and start applying protective spray of below stated. Cucurbits (Cucumber, squash, cantaloupe) Orondis opti; Elumin+Bravo; Ranman+Bravo Previcur flex+BravoIf Orondis was used as a soil application, please do not use it as foliar (use restriction according to the product label).
For more information please contact your local county extension agent.
